A Thousand Things And Nothing - Poem by Barbara Haskell

A thousand things and nothing,
can conjure up memories of you.
Everything about you, before I could become your wife
and I'll remember them all the rest of my life.
A joke you told, that made me laugh,
the two of us taking a candlelit bath.
The times we tried with all our might,
to fly higher and higher with our kites.
The way we raced down that desert road,
becoming ever more bold.
The way you looked barbequeing our steaks,
the memories make my heart break.
The times we spent at the beach,
feeding seagulls, just out of our reach.
The way you held my first grandaughter,
how you looked when you did your John Wayne saunter.
The way you looked when you did something wrong,
the beautiful way you could sing any song.
The funny faces you'd suddenly make,
the memories make my heart break.
A thousand things and nothing,
can conjure up memories of you,
everything about you, before I could become your wife
and I'll remember them all for the rest of my life.

    'A joke you told, that made me laugh,

    It's those little things we never forget.
