Ever Close in Mind and Heart
No further away than a picture
A smile or remembered phrase,
Our loved ones live in memory…
So close in so many ways.
For how often does a sunset
Bring nostalgic thoughts to mind,
Of moments that our loved ones shared
In days now left behind.
How often has a flower
Or a crystal autumn sky,
Brought golden recollections
Of happy days gone by!
Yes, memory has a magic way
Of keeping loved ones near…
Ever close in mind and heart
Are the ones we hold most dear.
-Marjorie Frances Ames
