A Book of Memory

by Princess Love   May 15, 2006

A book of memory
Is all I have left now to call mine
Every page has a story to tell
Of the lifeless memories you left behind

Once in a while I go through this book
When your thoughts are filled in my mind
I laugh and I cry thinking of those days
The days which I wish I could rewind

As I read through the lines
I can see those moments coming alive
Two of us together so much in love
But somehow it just could not survive

There is a rose in between the pages
It's the very first rose you ever gave me
Our love is just like this rose
Dried out without love and care
But its existence I can still see

Somewhere in my mind I lost all sense of time
I try to walk forward but I keep looking behind
How can I move on when all I think about is you
Leaving you behind is something I can't do

So I keep coming back to this book of mine
To relive the love that was so precious and true
The finest years I ever knew in my life
Were all the years that I had with you

    I guess thats why diamond rings are perfect for getting married. It doesn't wither and shines forever.

    Michelle! this one brought tears to my eyes. the poem symbolises so much more than is apparent - it is often a book of memories that we all go back to time and again, isn't it?

    great work.

    good luck and peace
