Poem "Memory Holder"

Memory holder
By Elizabeth Parada

Your presence fades
Like smoke
To keep it close 
I speak of you, 
I think of you.
You may be gone
Yet live in me.
I’m a memory holder,
A memory keeper 
A memory hoarder
A memory reaper
To catch your smile,
cradle it close,
Your silly thoughts 
Your brilliant mind 
To make you mine 
Though you are gone
To keep you close 
I speak of you,
I think of you. 
You may be gone
Yet live in me.

I’m a memory holder.

Happy Birthday Joshua!

I'm so proud of the man you have become.
You are intelligent, warm, honorable and caring. I love you very much.
Love, Dad.
