This poem is the best way I can express how I feel when I hear the voices of wisdom when I remember them; This is…

REMEMBRANCE

by LIMITLESS

 

Thinking back, linking photographic memories to still picture,

tracks,

remembering the smiles of loved one’s departed from sight;

(ha)

I even miss the fights, the disagreements, & the laughter that followed after pride was swallowed.

I remember my Elders through the wisdom they gave me; I remember my Elders through their words,

they live on,

for their care fashioned me strong.

I must go on pushing through the pain,

I have to go along with the plan that took you out of hand and into arms,

 Heavenly.

I can’t wait to hear your stories

 again;

 I wish I paid more attention to them when you where before me

not realizing their value I erred thinking they bored me

I hope you have forgiven my youthful foolishness

I wish I could’ve done more then this;

wanting to show my appreciation I will live-

in your words

you exist,

still!

taking your correction

your wisdom muscle still flex’n

to my friends I’m professing your words

such a blessing

knowing your watchful eye is still glaring, your voice still blares your cultured catch phrases:

“BOY YOU CRAZY”,

“SAUSAGE, boy get out the way”,

&

“SHUCKY DUCKY, QUACK, QUACK”

I catch the tears that attempt to call you back hearing your words to keep me on track;

you tell me to stay focused, the more you loosen your grip on the past the tighter you can take hold of your future present’s

“you can’t put new wine in old wine skin’s”

“you live your life”

“We’ll be here always,

waiting,

resting,

in your remembrance”….
