1. Memories of Youth
Golden days gone by,
Filled with laughter and love,
Now just faded memories,
Of the youth we once were.
2. The Sun Sets
Another day has passed,
The sun sets without fail,
So much to reminisce about,
As the night begins to unveil.
Grateful for life,
For the joys and the strife,
Our hearts full of love,
Thankful for blessings from above.
4. Timeless Beauty
Aging may bring wrinkles,
But it cannot hide the beauty within,
For the spirit remains ageless,
And forever glows from within.
Golden years, once so far away
Now fleeting, but here to stay
Time has flown, oh how it slips
Leaves us with memories on which to grip
Age creeps up, but we must be strong
Hold onto dear loved ones all lifelong
Golden years, a time to cherish
With wisdom gained, we will not perish
Let us dance, let us laugh
Embrace each moment in our path
Golden years, like the setting sun
Is still beautiful when the day is done
Memories of Youth
Memories of youth, oh so bright
Shining through, like the morning light
Of the days, when we were young
Full of joy, laughter and fun
Reminiscing, of those carefree times
Still feeling the warmth of the sun’s shine
Going down memory lane, yet again
Savoring our youthfulness, my dear friend
Memories of youth, we hold so dear
Of our loved ones who are no longer here
Life goes on, but memories stay
For us to cherish, every day
A Lifetime of Memories
Through golden years and silver strands,
A lifetime of memories in our hands.
The moments, the joys, the trials we faced,
All woven into the tapestry of our days.
We’ve lived through wars and walked on the moon,
Seen the birth of technology and the rise of a new tune.
We’ve watched as the world has changed before our eyes,
Yet we hold onto our memories as they arise.
With each passing year comes more to recall,
The laughter, the love, and the moments we crawl.
Through hardships and struggles, we’ve learned to endure,
And cherish the memories that keep us pure.
Our children grown, our grandchildren near,
We see the world through a new kind of cheer.
Our eyesight may dim, our hearing may fade,
But our memories remain with us, unafraid.
So let us celebrate this lifetime of memories,
And hold onto the moments that make us feel free.
For our lives have been rich, our stories complete,
And our memories will live on, even when we retreat.
Seasons of Life
Springtime brought us sunny days,
Days that welcomed new blooms and new ways,
A time of growth and youthful haste,
Where the world was vast and never seemed chaste.
Summertime brought a summer’s dream,
Bright lights and hopes, how bright they seem,
A time of vigor and earnest joy,
Where the world was endless and our lives to enjoy.
Autumn came and leaves fell down,
We saw our families smile and frown,
A time of elegance and mature thoughts,
Where the world was wise and the lessons were taught.
Winter, winter..such a cold and dreary sight,
We saw our world transform into a state of white,
A time of reflection and quiet peace,
Where the world was gentle and our worries cease.
Age creeps upon us like a thief,
Taking our youth and energy with its grip,
Yet in time, we see the worth of this thief,
How it’s taught us balance and gratefulness, our reward for its theft.
So today, though our wrinkles are vast,
We still smell the sweet scent of the fresh cut grass,
As our youth departs and winter draws close,
Our days shall be counted, but we’ll reminisce the most.
