Death Can'T Touch A Memory Poem by Vallerie Lobell

Death Can'T Touch A Memory

Rating: 5.0

Death can't touch a memory,
Can't chisel it from one's heart,
As far as I am concerned,
You and I never did part,

You are still with me in all I do,
I see you in my mind's eye,
That smile still on your face,
I have no need to cry,

When things are sometimes said,
I turn and look your way,
I know what you are thinking,
I know what you will say,

So close are we still,
And always will be,
Together because,
Death can't touch a memory,

There is an old song by the New York Dolls called 'You Can't Put Your Arms Around A Memory' Your poem clears that all up for me...

Valerie I've writen poems about the death of my daughter this piece could have come from my own heart. Losing a loved one is a beginning as well as an end as long as they live in your heart they will forever be alive thank you for giving me a new viewpoint on the greatest tragedy that any human can endure Harry

A well-accepted fact of life - that in our memory, death has no hold. Excellent work of art!
