Precious memories of my Mother
forever stored within my mind
I hear her singing gospel music
when my thoughts drift back in time.
Recalling time spent with my brothers
Never miss a local story.
that sped by much too fast
Are unforgettable memories
that I treasure from my past.
I long for the days I spent with my son
before his car crashed into a tree
though my heart forever aches from his passing
he still lives on in my memory.
I have said good-bye much too often
to many people who were very dear to me
The times I spent with them are priceless
thats why they're locked up in my memory.
All those who have gone on before me
each one,on my life left their mark
You can take from me all my possessions
but you cannot take what I hold in my heart.
Looking back on a lifetime of memories
all of my cherished moments in time
It's a blessing to know as I'm aging
I can thus far keep them stored in my mind.
