Remember When....

Remember When....

A Poem by Judy Ponceby

Sweet memories.....


Remember when, you were a very little boy
and your mom would warm the towels up in the dryer
so when you jumped out of the bathtub shivering you would feel cozy warm?

Remember when, you were a very little girl
and your dad would hold you in his arms
and whirl around in circles until you both fell to the ground laughing?

Remember when, you were a little boy
and you scraped your knee when you fell out of the tree,
and your mom held you close until the tears stopped?

Remember when, you were so sick you stayed home from school,
and your mom made special soup just for you
and cuddled you up and read your favorite story 6 times, just because?

Remember when, your pet hamster, Louie, died,
and you insisted on having an official burial ceremony,
and mom and dad said nice things about Louie before the shoebox was covered up?

Remember when, you were a little girl,
and your grandma gave you your first china tea set
and she had tea and crumpets with you and Bear?

Remember when, you were very young,
and a hug or a kiss or a word would repair
the biggest hurts in the world?

I remember when..............................................................

Hi... its nice to meet YOU...

A comment on the poem:

I wish I had shared YOUR home back then... and that you and yours might NEVER find yourselves in any of the ones I knew.

Take care,

Yes, i do remember all these things you wrote about so well.
Makes me long for the days when all could be made better with just a kiss to kiss away the 'boo boo'.
Those days were some of the best. I hope everyone has one of these memories.
Very heartfelt and so moving.

Beautiful memories of love, parenting, and hope. Sometimes we dwell so much on the bad things that happen in life that we forget to remember those wonderful moments in time when we were loved and happy.
