Let’s Remember While We Can

Let’s Remember …

Every wonder that comes our way,

every day that means so very much,

all the shooting stars we’ve wished upon,

all the dreams we have dared to dream.

Let’s remember them all while we can,

take time to look over old pictures –

of those you long for and you miss.

Sending you back into the past,

making you smile and cry,

making you feel like it’s yesterday once more.

Seeing where it all began,

seeing where there was first you and there was first me

and hold these moments fast in our hearts.

Because this is part of who we were and still are,

let’s remember while we can.

The first time we met

and the feelings that we had.

The first time we loved one another,

our hearts beating ever so fast.

Let’s remember while we can,

while life still has so much to give,

while we still have stars in our eyes,

while we still love and care.

Let’s take the time,

to play all those old tunes –

that made us so crazy years ago

and dance the whole night through.

Then sit together you and me

and watch the sun rise up in the sky.

Let’s remember while we can,

there is no time like the present,

to enjoy being with the one we love,

to share the good times,

the loving moments

and to be able to say I love you.

Let’s remember while we can,

to share all that means so very much,

to reach out to the stars

and make our special wishes come true.

To dance beneath the full moon above,

just to live and to love like never before,

just you and I,

as white strands mingle with the gold.

Let’s remember while we can.

while life still goes on

and there are many moments more to treasure.

Let’s keep making memories,

and share them with one another.

Let’s capture each and every smile,

every touch and every glance –

just to freeze those moments in time.

Let’s fill every day with pleasure,

just because we dare

and never close the curtain.

on any day,

without taking the time,

to be together –

taking the time to say I love you.

    Rasma, this poem is very heart-warming and so nicely penned. It creates a nostalgic moment, a reminder of how precious it is to reminisce about the loving times that gave us joy.

    PS: “of those, you long for …” ( In this phrase of yours, a comma should not be after ‘those’. Please remove it, or, I can do it for you if you prefer.

    SEO Fixes:
    This is not criticism, just my job. 🙂
    – I changed your keyword ‘remembering’ to ‘let’s remember’, because, the word ‘remembering’ is not in your title or the text.
    – I extended your meta to the green line.
    – I added the keyword to the image alt text.
    These fixes raise your SEO from OK to GOOD.

      Thank you, Phyllis. Thank you also for fixing for the SEO and I will take that comma off.
