Memories Are The Things That Last Longer, by MwsR

When the whirl of your life passes you
There is not much but memories to hold onto.
Those that you started each day with a new
Are no longer the ones that surround you.
A certain calm you cannot find
There is so much pressing on your mind.
Waiting to relax, it isn’t happening
Afraid if you do, you will start napping
Wishing it all back to where it once was
But knowing inside, there were fights and a lot of fuss.
Where you lay your head isn’t always where your heart is
And sometimes you just miss it!
Life is ever-changing and uncertain in itself
Our hearts are not something we simply rest on a shelf.
We must work, hold on to, and get stronger
And remember sometimes, memories are the things that last longer.

The river is a flat, shining chain.  
The moon, rising, is a white eye to the hills; 
After it has risen, it is the bright heart of the sea. 
Because I love it—so—round as a fan, 
I hum songs until the dawn.

–Li Po (701–762)

Famous Poem Share~ Jacques Prevert “Alicante”

An orange on the table

Your dress on the rug

And you in my bed

Sweet present of the present

Cool of night

Warmth of my Life

Jacques prevert

From “A Book of Love Poetry” Jon Stallworthy

Quoting Poetry From The Book” Golden Treasury” by Francis T. Palgrave

Fain would I change that note

To which fond Love hath charm’d me so

Long long to sing by rote,

Fancying that that harm’d me:

Yet when this thought doth come

Love is the perfect sum

Of all delight.

The Passionate Shepherd To His Love/ VIII/Omnia Vincit
