Do You Remember
Do you remember your youth, days gone by?
by Sandra Finch
Can you still feel happy just looking at the sky?
Do you remember catching fireflies, watching them glow?
Thinking your parents knew everything that there was to know.
Do you remember how mud felt between your toes?
The excitement you felt seeing the season’s first snow.
Do you remember looking at the stars in the sky,
Thinking you could touch them if only you tried.
The joy in my heart is the same as when I was small
I still enjoy the morning dove as he makes his early call.
I still love small puppies and kittens that purr,
And I love you – this I’m sure.
Do you remember the excitement on waking Christmas Day?
Finding what Santa left you, the new games to play.
Do you remember that magic of your first love,
And kneeling, saying Thank-you, to our Lord up above.
These days live forever in our memories and in our hearts.
Cherished and shared, they’re a part of who we are.
Images of happiness, beauty and love,
This is what we say Thank-you for-
To the Lord up above.
