Moments in Time

Memories, parties, vacations,
The day you married your wife.
Sharply captured, printed and shared.
Those precious moment
Sustained for life.

Freezing smiles, hugs
And mountain views.
My basketball game
That made the news.

Moments in time,
I never want to let go.
That beautiful picture
of you,
Still makes me glow.

  1. YOU ARE RIGHT—-WE DO REMEMBER THE TIMES–NOT THE DAYS—
    IT IS NICE TO REMEMBER THE GOOD TIMES–
    AND WE SHOULD ALWAYS KEEP MAKING MEMORIES—
    THAT IS WHY—I LOVE TAKING PICTURES—!! (‘-‘)

  2. The moments like these make up an eternity of joy. If you tried to focus on the whole day, eternity would blur and dim and lose its light.

  3. “those precious moments, sustained for life”, so very true, catlas. And not just the moments, but also the feelings that come up at that moment. I also love the quote you put there in the end. I love using quotes whenever possible too, and you remind me of two quotes from my role model, Maya Angelou. If you don’t mind, I’d like to share them with you:

    “Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away.”

    “I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.”

    Thank you for stopping by and commenting on my blog too earlier.
