Creative fun in
the palm of your hand.

This poem was written to deal with the loss of my younger sister.
Memories of You

I remember the day mom brought you home
You innocent and small, I four years old
I stared in wonderment, unsure what to do
Now I have only memories of you

We shared a room seven years or more
Gosh how I hated it when you would snore
Still, you were the one that I adored
And these memories of you

Santa, the pool table and swimming pool
The hi-fi, the TV and walking to school
Playing Sorry and checkers and Monopoly too
Those wonderful old memories of you

I missed your wedding, I regret that still
Work too important, paying the bills
Lost opportunities from foolishness too
Causing regrettable memories of you

The day that I lost you far less than fun
Two men in a car, brandishing a gun
One moment frozen in time and my memory too
Now I have only memories of you
