In Memory Poem

A mother recalls memories of her youth and get lost in nostalgic recall.

My Mother

© Amanda J. Ford

We're all the same, yet so different... my sisters and I.
walking as children down by the river I can recall those times.

I am grown with a child of my own and I can clearly see how important family is to me. The times we shared, the good and the bad, whenever we were happy or sad.

All the ways we became who we are, whether we are near or far, came from my family.

And the times have come and gone so fast, but the memories will forever last.

I find myself wishing to be young,
running in the sun, with my family...
but those times are done.

As an adult I must move on and provide my children with their family!
