This & That

by: Donna L Martin

All those crystal clear memories
you’ve etched in my heart
to help soften the pain
during the times we’re apart.
And when clouds threaten my skies
I open that little door
to release a small memory
filled with Love, Hope, and More.
Love when you made me care,
hope when you spoke of we.
And More when you revealed secrets
of how you’d like things to be.
But memories are all I have
now that we’ve drifted apart
to remind me you’re still there
in the etchings of my heart.

I may not have gone where I intended to go, but I think I have ended up where I needed to be.  ~ Douglas Adams 

You have brains in your head.  You have feet in your shoes.  You can steer yourself any direction you choose.  ~ Dr. Seuss, OH! THE PLACES YOU'LL GO

It is better to read a little and ponder a lot than to read a lot and ponder a little.  ~ Denis Parsons Burkitt
