Ever Close In Mind & Heart
No further away than a picture,
a smile or remembered phrase,
our loved ones live in memory –
so close in so many ways.
For how often does a sunset bring
nostalgic thoughts to mind of
moments that our loved ones shared
in days now left behind.
How often has a flower, or a crystal
autumn sky brought golden
recollections of happy days gone by.
Yes, memory has a magic way of keeping
loved ones near – ever close in
mind and heart are the ones we hold most dear.
