Sentimental subtleties

Grace the pages of life’s book

Coloring it with hues of love and laughter

Sadness and pain

Emotions of change

And smiles.

Memories are evoked

When a single charge

Of emotional electricity

Sparks from the smell of homemade bread

The song that pierces the heart

Or a touch that sends us reeling.

Time disappears

In the moment when we’re whisked away

To another time and day

When we were younger

Happier, unaffected by time

Lost in the innocence of our youth


Hold tight

To the memories of yesterdays

Where we savor the joy and pain

Of playing, growing, loving

Learning and becoming


Remember well

The snapshots of our youth.
