Welcome that memory

In my mind like candle flicker,
a memory burns low, yet still alive.
Holding on through the frost so bitter,
reminding us all how to survive.
A simple thought, easily mislabeled.
A memory covered by the snow of time.
But ignites the hope and good enabled..
That once was lost, will again be mine.

  1. The imagery, rhythm and words , there’s a beauty to how you’ve placed them all together to paint this moving piece. I especially like the line “Holding on through the frost so bitter, reminding us all how to survive…” I hope in time, the flicker grows into a flame.
