We can’t have the happy, without the sad,
The interaction of yin and yang.
The merge of hearts and the touch of hands,
Together – now apart – leaving a pang.
The memory – of a summer spent playing,
Long, lingering nights and days to create.
The love of family, brought close together,
Often reliant on pen, phone and paper.
We exchanged glances, smiles and caresses,
shared food – and chinked glasses.
The memories we made are lasting.
The strings of our hearts still connected.
So fortunate are we – to have had the time –
To walk the same paths, our footprints together…
To share words of a page, side by side –
and made our own stories to read in our minds.
Hundreds and thousands sprinkled on our hearts –
Shared in our memories.
Felt in our breath.
Imprinted on our skin.
No matter the time –
No matter the distance –
Thank you for the memories… till the next time xx
