"So shines a good deed in a weary world."

Memories are mine
Remaining forever
Never to change
Written in stone
Music brings me back
Pictures, videos, more
But objects... Gifts
They cannot be replaced
A jewelry box from grandma
The gift on Christmas
The Chicago bag from my sister
Returning from her trip
The necklace from my mother
Broken but still in my room
The necklace from the boy
For a Christmas unforgettable
These stay with me bolder
If they were gone...
I’d lose the tie to a memory
The little doll
Poof gone
There goes the only one different
Why can’t I let go?
Then again is it bad to hold on?
I think not
Objects are a quick tie
Like the red dress that started it all
Or the orange stuffed crayon
From a day with friends
Everything is a tie
To a date, time, moment
Day or night
Summer, winter, fall, or spring
It is something you can’t shake
But why would you?
Those moments are forever
With many more to come
So I hold them close
Remembering the great times
Those days that made me happy.

All the little things, to me, often mean the most, I hate to give them up.
