Smiling at the memories

Smiling at the picture, remembering what I had.

Smiling at your picture. The memories I`m glad.

We made them all together.

We were rarely apart.

Smile at the picture, smile at you, indelible in my heart.

The memories we had, were just for you and me.

The conversations sweet and low, for no one else to hear.

Memories now are different.

Making some that are new and strange.

Ones without you in them.

Ones without your name.

Memories now are mine, new traditions here for me.

Ones for me to live with. This life here now, just me.
