A reminder to treasure loved ones and the present moment.
Preserves
                                                           "All that's beautiful
                                                           drifts away like the
                                                           waters." W.B. Yeats

We capture blissful moments
to store in mind and heart,
We stow away fair visions
of our loved ones when we part.

Good times and dear faces
are seldom known to linger,
They sift away, despite our grasp,
Like sand between our fingers.
