Memory Lost.


I remember those times,

Those special times

When together we explored,

Explored our world together.

Walking the Dales,

Just us and nature,

And our love for each other.


Listening to music,

Going to the opera,

Going to the ballet,

Our love for each other shining.


The concerts in which she sang

And I looked at her,

With her voice sailing towards me

With the love,

The love that never dies.


I remember that special day

When she walked down the aisle,

Walked towards me,

This beautiful lady,

My lady.

And forever we have been one,

One soul full of love.


I remember all these things

And tell her of them,

As she does not remember.

    A poignant write Gold. Some may say 'the good old days' and want to curse the present days, due to illness, ailments, etc. Unless fortunate to have a cosy later-life.

    • Goldfinch60

      Thank you Orchi. All days are good.

        sometimes I will read something, or hear something that sends a shiver down my spine.... these words of yours today did exactly that my friend.. a page filled with memories and love is worth its weight in gold... such a page shared, is priceless.... Neville

        • Goldfinch60

          Such kind words Neville, thank you.

            you are more than deserving of the truth sir.. and so I give it freely.. N

          • dusk arising

            Looking back into my poetry, i find pieces i have written which take me back to the moment and the wonderful feelings of that time.
            I imagine your words today are doing similar with you.
            If you do not already have them then i would encourage you to capture some magic moments, particular afternoons, evenings or whatever so that, in reading them years from now, you are there again... feeling every pleasure of shared joy.

            A terrible affliction has robbed you two of the romance of shared memories. I would personally struggle with bitterness and most definitely feel a great loss.
            I feel for you.

            • Goldfinch60

              Yes d a, those memories are captured in words, photographs and music, they are still being captured.
              Your thoughts and feelings for us are most wonderful, thank you.

            • Poetic Dan

              Thank you for sharing these marvellous wonderful memories with me, I shall keep them going and tell my kids and they will tell there's.
              Of one of the most loving understanding gentlemen I know that helped his wife while his heart broke, still giving his light out to all the people.

              When I'm asked how I found mine, you'll be one of many carrying my vibration.

              Thank you Andy

              • Goldfinch60

                What wonderful words Dan, you are most kind and my appreciation for your support is boudless.

              • Michael Edwards

                Poignant indeed but at least you have those memories which will never be erased.

                • Goldfinch60

                  Thank you Michael and very true, I have those memories.

                • ANGELA & BRIAN

                  Thanks for SHARING UNCLE ANDY ~ Love that song and that version is very very animated. Living 11,500 miles apart from my Beloved Angela until OCTOBER is very very difficult ~ BUT ~ when we SKYPE each other She is as lively & loving as a KITTEN and the MILES melt away ~ BUT ~ when we switch OFF ~ the lonliness returns and we both shed tears of SEPARATION. Consequently I can empathise with you but only a FEW PERCENT ! Angela & I are building MEMORIES together ~ Especially SOUTH ISLAND (NZ) which I shared with you all. BUT the thought that we could never share them again would fill me with DESPAIR ! I sense the pathos in your Poem and I am sure it is CATHARTIC (useful word when you dont know what to say !)for You to Share with US (your cyber Friends) that which you can no longer share (physically) with your Beloved Joyce ! You are TWO such Beautiful People these emotional POEMS make me WEEP for YOU BOTH ! BUT as I have said so OFTEN before ~ Reading them assures ANGELA & I (who are still enjoying the Wonder of our Early LOVE) that should one of US become *withdrawn* ~ Our Love for each other would grow through the PAIN and NEVER NEVER DIMINISH ~ so please please keep sharing Your Unique LOVE for JOYCE with us all in such tender Musings ~ AMEN

                  Blessings Love & Peace to YOU & JOYCE
                  Your Friends as always ANGELA & BRIAN
                  🧡 🧡 🧡 🧡 🧡 🧡 🧡 (7 for True Love !)

                  • Goldfinch60

                    YOur words are most kind Brian. Those memories that you are building in your life are so important, and in your latter years you will be able to look back upon them with fondness and affection as I do.

                  • Fay Slimm.

                    The courage to face such a memory loss must be the strongest of all and this heart-wrenching verse honestly shares those gone precious moments that although now not remembered by your other half still live in the spirit of love. A tribute to lifetime devotion dear Andy and thank you for sharing it.

                    • Goldfinch60

                      Thank you Fay, that devotion will never fail and our love will go on for eternity.

                    • Suresh

                      Differing from the others for a moment let me say:
                      YOUR sadness originates from the fact that Her illness has taken her to a place where her past does not exist, and her present is robbing her of her future. That all new memories are only yours and not yours together.
                      I pray that you treat this as preparing yourself for the eventuality of actuallity to be, for it is obvious that the love you hold for her is eternal and letting your memories together be your comfort, your day dreams and dreams themselves, and the softest pillow on which you ever laid your head.

                      • Goldfinch60

                        Thank you Suresh for you wonderful words, our dreams will go on for eternity as will we, laying on that softest pillow forever.
