Fading memories

My memories may be fading

they are no longer clear to me

be assured they are only hiding

warm and safe you just can’t see.

***

For they are tucked up safely in my heart

a treasure trove so precious

each hold a special place

with beauty that leaves me breathless.

***

My eyes may no longer sparkle

but please be sure to know

these eyes watched in wonder

as I nurtured and saw you grow.

***

Now don’t be sad my darling

my heart still holds you close

this shell is just the wrapping

of a life filled with those I love the most.
