HE Gave Me Memories

My wish is that everyone of you, had the beautiful and loving memories I did.

At this time of my life when my days on this earth are numbered.
I go back into my memories where I am never encumbered.
Such beautiful reminders of the wonderful life Iíve lead.
A terrific place to visit and enjoy rather than the present life instead.

I can stay as long as I want to, no hurry to leave this place.
I can remember my childhood so well for it was my true base.
The loving parents I had were treasures given to me for awhile.
Remembering their loving ways always leaves me with a smile.

My favorite time was waking up to the smell of homemade bread.
So it was very easy for me to quickly get out of my bed.
I can still taste the sticky buns all gooey and warm inside.
Oh, I had a astonishing childhood filled joy and pride.

The loving gift of memory is one of my favorites that God gave me.
Letting me relive my amazing past and who I was destined to be.
So if life gets difficult for me at times I know where I want to go.
Itsí back into my memories, with the love & security, I know.

I write about it because I know many of you werenít as lucky as me.
Your childhood was filled with tears & no memories you want to see.
Iíll share mine with you and show you what a true childhood is about.
And I guarantee when you come to visit, youíll hope no one lets you out.
