For Her - Poem by M.J. Lemon

That laugh revives a warm memory.
Shoulders rolling hair swinging
That year a familiar territory
as near as last Saturday

I'll fill the carafe
You can keep troubles at bay
just bring that laugh

    That year a familiar territory
    as near as last Saturday....................

    The meeting of some lovely persons we admire, their gestures of love like a hearty laugh, a pleasant remark, a gentle nod.... all such things though must have happened years ago will lie in our memory as fresh and new as something that happened just recently! Beautifully expressed, Lemon!

    You have succinctly put the beauty of friendship! A hearty laugh from a loving friend can take away all our gloom! Even if that friend may not be with us at the moment, the very memory of that person's single gesture of love and affection can ignite sparks of joy in us! (Report)Reply

    Mj Lemon(2/2/2017 9:37:00 PM)

    Thank you, Valsa. And yes, even the power of memories can restore hope, joy, affection....

    She made me laugh
    Until it hurt
    Then I burst
    Into tears
    Of wondrous joy

    Thank you, M.J. for the wonderful memories of some of the women I had loved.
