Memories in the mind


Memories are made in the mind,
and there if you search, you will find.
There in the mind, so many things,
so many memories it brings.

So many years have passed,
of our youth, away we have cast
some memories happy, some memories sad,
memories have I, when I was a lad.

Memories have I, of a dog named shep,
memories of him, when he kept in step.
Memories of my friends, when we played,
of those days, for ever memories relayed.

Memories of family and fun,
when we talked until the setting of sun.
Memories of washing our fifty-seven Ford,
and wanting things we couldn't afford.

Memories are made in the mind,
long lost, search and you will find,
memories of days gone by,
searching memories, oh how you try.

Memories will fade out,
you have forgotton, what it's about,
memories lost in the mind,
dig them out and you will find.

    If memories are the diary of old age, Jim Foulk properly fills the pages of my 'year books! ' My dog wasn't named Shed, and my favorite car wasn't a '57 Ford, but this poem brought my pet and roadster back to life. (Report) Reply

That is for ever England. There shall be
In that rich earth a richer dust concealed;
