Memories Of You 

It is funny the things you remember 
When you find yourself alone; 
I thought about you again today, 
My thoughts carried me back home. 
If you could, I know you would remember 
All the good times together we shared; 
Picnics, my first date, mother-daughter talks, 
And hugs that told me you cared. 
I was only sixteen when you left us; 
My heart broke the night that you died; 
But slowly time had a way of healing 
All the pain that I felt deep inside. 

Although sometimes I have trouble recalling 
Your face or the sound of your laugh, 
I know time will not steal all memories of you; 
It will not take the love that I have. 
And on days like today when my thoughts carry me home, 
Back to the memories of you; 
I will always be grateful for the years that we had 
And for the sweet mother's love that I knew.
