    My entry for the Autumn Poetry competition.

    I remember

    I remember the first time
    The day that we met.
    When I came to your clearing,
    Oh dear, was I wet!

    With your arms so inviting
    I nestled in them.
    All that rain became pretty -
    A bond was forged then.

    I remember times after,
    The years while I grew,
    The hours of laughing
    Spent playing with you.

    Not a care in the whole world,
    A wonderful time.
    I was glad that I'd met you
    Such joy was then mine.

    I remember the first time
    I brought you my love.
    All the hours spent talking,
    Secured from above.

    As we sat hand in hand there
    Your bough as our tent,
    I'd say this was most precious:
    This sense of content.

    I remember the day when
    I came full of tears.
    When I had no idea how
    To face the come years.

    But the loss in time faded,
    New life comes from end.
    Through the times till I saw this
    You were a good friend.

    I remember these past times.
    My way I did make.
    As a sign of remembrance
    A leaf I then take.

    But when turning it over,
    A moment I pause.
    Will this fade into nothing?
    Be gone when I pass?

    I remember ...
    ... What is this?
    Do movement I see?
    And I peer up more closely...
    A lad's in the tree!

    As I watch him swing joyful,
    He shouts out his glee;
    And I turn back home smiling.

    This lad --
    He'll remember thee.
    Lully, Nimelia, Rubellita and 2 others like this.
