Times of Your Life

Can you imagine the times of your life

from the long-ago yesterdays?

When the days were mellow,

just like the sweetest wine.

Every sunrise,

brought surprises and delight,

every sunset –

ended with lullabies.

A time when life,

had a slower speed limit

and you could stop,

to share a kiss or two.

Remember when roses

grew along every path you took?

Feeling like,

you were living a dream.

Imaginary or real,

colorful flowers,

to you seemed so real.

Could it be that it was

so very long ago?

Perhaps the answer lies –

somewhere in your memories.

Days when the best things,

were strawberries and cream,

when you still believed in fairy tales

and always had a special dream.

If for every one of those memories,

you got a dollar bill,

your piggy bank,

would be so very full.

But then there’d be,

no more dreams to dream,

no more goals to achieve –

you’d have it all except for the memories.

Never give up on your dreams,

never forget how special they always seemed,

keep the flame of hope burning –

as long as this world keeps turning.

Look back and see,

that your life is shining,

like a bright copper penny,

each new day a treasure.

Be good to those you love,

take life day by day,

the good with the bad,

never let those sad days bring you down,

Hold on tight to what you have,

count your blessings day in and day out,

listen to what your friends have to say,

as they bring smiles to you.

Then someday you will see,

that you are special indeed,

just like the sun, the moon, and the stars –

stretching into eternity.

    Lovely, delightful inspirational piece, Rasma.

    Please correct typo: “Look back and see,

    that your life is shinning,” shinning should be shining.
