Christmas Day 2018

My Memory Christmas Tree

Ornaments on my tree
Recall what use to be;
Moments, gone like snowflakes,
Forever frozen as keepsakes.

White doves, now grey,
Welcome the Lord’s Day;
Hearts saying “I do”
Once again look new.

Memories bought and made
On my tree never fade:
Pipe cleaner candy canes,
Button wreaths, paper chains.

Milestone markers, travel souvenirs
Bring both smiles and tears;
My patchworked memoir
Together under a tin foil star.

Memories always grow
Counting of blessings bestow;
Christmas continues evermore
At love’s eternal core.
