I have tombstones in my heart
Places where those I once held in reality
Now live in sacred memories
I visit them often, talk with them, hold them
Remind them of bygone days of joy and pain....
No one passes through life
Without the longings for days gone by
Memories painted on an open heart
Cherished beyond earthly limitations.
Weaved within a tapestry of thoughts and dreams.....
Today I transpose what is reality
Instead returning to a humble time
Flesh and bones no longer haunting me
Resting in the serenity of a grace filled realm
Created by life itself....
While I repose in wonder and mystery
I once again hold close to my craving heart
The joy, the laughter, the tears and sorrow
Weighed in equal measure
Thanking God for moments in time.....
