Remember the Good Times

img207

My youngest was killed in a car crash in 2004. Because memories of his childhood are so unforgettable, I’ve learned to survive my sorrow by recalling the joy he brought to everyone around him–including me.

REMEMBER THE GOOD TIMES

We don’t always

have to be sad.

Just remember the good times

that he had.

~

Remember his birthdays,

and his birth.

Remember the wonder,

and count the worth.

~

Remember the swing

in the back yard

Remember ballgames

when he played hard.

~

Remember his laughter,

the fun that he had.

Remember his jokes

when we were sad.

~

Remember excitement

when Christmas time came;

his surprise and delight

with that new-fangled game.

~

Remember vacation

with sand, crabs, and ocean.

His cool guitar playing,

notes strung with emotion.

~

We don’t always

have to be sad.

Remember the good times

that he had.
