This beautiful and insightful poem was written by a classmate of my daughter. She just graduated from the 8th grade!
Remember forgetting what you were to remember
Remember the times you never wanted to end
Remember the times you need to learn from
Remember the people, places and things
They are you
Remember to get lost in “remember”
Remember to laugh, smile and dance
I hope you dance!
Remember these are only memories
Remember the words he sang
Remember to give away love
Remember the songs, the tears, the triumphs, and fears
Remember they are you
Remember to live in the moment
And to pull out that shoe box of memories
Remember your young wisdom
Remember to call
Remember to hang their letters on the wall
Remember who you are and where you came from
Remember………. Don’t forget!
