A poem about memories and who makes them.

One last memory
Come share it with me
This last chance to see
What we grew to be
We traveled so far
To follow our star
And bore every scar
To say here we are
And tides washed the shore
Where we used to play
And kiss everyday
To never need more
One last memory
A moment set free
When lovers like we
Met our destiny
Two flowers in bloom
A gentle perfume
Dispelling all gloom
That dreams may resume
And time washed the shore
Where we used to stray
As kisses set way
To be there once more
One last memory
This past fantasy
That asked for no fee
For heavens to flee
And once more we’re there
With so much to share
No needs and no care
Just bask in the air
Of last memory
That you made with me

    The power of art does reside in tender awareness of the transient…

    You have nuanced it so:-)

    Thank you:-)
