Hello Gran your memories are here,
a memory of picking yellow flowers so clear.
A memory I hold so dear to my soul,
a memory of love that was so whole.
A memory of a hot summer day in mid July,
a memory that will never die.
A memory of walking hand in hand,
a memory in a meadow on your land.
A memory of waking from my sleep,
a memory of seeing your face , I want to keep

a memory of us fishing so very clear.
A memory of so much fun,
a memory with me you would run.
A memory of you coming home from hunting,
a memory of a baby bunting .
A memory of a funny Christmas tree,
a memory of a sled you made for me.
A memory of how you loved me so,
a memory that I’ll never let go

A memory of you as a younger man,
a memory of you telling me , I can.
A memory of you always being there,

A memory of you my dear brother passing away,
a memory of you on that final day

A memory of you whistling a tune,
a memory of you drawing a loon.

a memory of you sitting by the brook.
A memory of you cooking that Christmas goose,
a memory of when I broke your ornament moose.
A memory of how you worked so hard,

Hello Aunt Mildred your memories are here,
a memory of my childhood with you so dear.
A memory of us being out on the boat,
a memory of your tiny baby goat.
A memory of how I hated summer end,
a memory of you being my best friend.
A memory of how you read to me,
a memory of when I got stung by a bee.
A memory of all my adult years we were apart ,
a memory of seeing you again, warmed my heart.
A memory of how we laughed at by gone years,
a memory of laughing until we were both in tears.
A memory of thinking of you on that very , very sad day,
a memory of that call I got saying you gently passed away
.

A flood of memories washes over me.
A flood of memories of years gone by.
A flood of memories some good to see.
