A poem about life
"Memories

Life is full of memories
All around they abound
None of them come for free
You do not find them on the ground.

Little by little they enter in
They are the battle scars of life
They are earned by our pain
They come to us through strife.

I will love you forever
Yet you are but a memory
Knowing this burns like fever
It tears the heart out of me.

I know I will grow from this
It does not mean I miss you less.
