Book Of Memories

A Poem by Alicia Hirshey

For my boys, Nathaniel and Matthew


Tactical laughter
Leaves tossed and thrown
A mother's longing
As I hide there alone
My child is older
In spirit and in age
Marked are the memories
I keep hidden away
A little book
Sits on my shelf
Inside are scribbles
Notes I wrote by myself
Kept is this book
From dust or despair
Hidden neatly
Waiting on you there
Pictures cover
The tiniest slots
Weeping on the paper
My every wish
My every thought
One day when your older
The fondest memories
The book will share
One of your brother
He always loved you
Merged on the cover
Along with you
Stealing affection
You hid it away
My little boys
You've saved the day
Here is mommy and daddy
The day we met
Hidden away
The secret had to be kept
Look how happy
We will always be
For you son
Have taught us to see.

Very sweet poem, I really enjoyed it.

You just made one mistake: it's you're not your in the line "one day when you're older".

Thank you for asking me to read this. Cheers and have a good day. :)
