Do you remember every memory, every laugh, every tear?
Through the din of this world, I can hear them calling on my ear.
As the world rushed wildly by;
our memories clouded us with a sigh.
We were ne'er apart, but stood closed in;
nothing could tear us apart, not even fleshly sin.
God whispered softly upon our lives;
His far-reaching arm shielded Satan's knives.
Do you remember Love's first light?
It took us unto the highest height.
Always and forever we vowed ne'er to part;
we followed God's guidance through His given Chart.
Music sprang anew, love never ceased;
our hearts were bound together, ne'er to be leased.
Now the memories are all we hold;
but love still reigns amidst the cold.
Rain fell, storms thundered from the deep;
but with smile upon our faces, in Christ's arms we did leap.
Alas! my heart grows old as the years pass;
will you hold me closer like you did when I was a lass?
Your hands, though gnarled, are still so strong;
they help me remember memories that omit no wrong.
Memories, Memories, do not leave me!
If I close my eyes, their beauty I can see.
Summer, Spring, Autumn, Winter, all are so dear;
if I could change the world, their glory I'd not shear.
My dear, my darling, do you remember?
