Remember These


These promising days
keep opening for you,
but closing too soon;

these spent days
becoming yesterdays,
accumulating into
dusty stacks of time,
old piles of years.

But,



if you listen carefully
some morning in spring,
when the Redbuds
warm the riverbanks,
and Flowering Dogwoods
reach out their slender arms of lace
to grace the edge of the woods;



if you listen carefully,
you may hear your dreams
still whispering in the breeze:

"Remember these."
