Remember, my dear,

A Poem By Grace J. // 7/31/2019

~ This is also something from my book. In the story it’s a song, but I wrote it as a poem so it works without a tune. It’s from the perspective of a mother singing to her child. ~

In the times of joy,
Of beauty and of light,
In days free of trouble—
Danger, sorrow, plight

When your life is filled
With blessings of ev’ry kind
Ne’er forget my words;
Keep them forever in your mind:

Remember, my dear,
That I love you still
I have loved you always
And I always will

When darkness blots out
The stars, sun, and moon
And when you feel
The coming of doom

When evil is pressing
Down on every side
When you want to flee
To surrender or to hide

Remember, my dear,
That I love you still
I have loved you always
And I always will

No matter what comes
Into your precious life—
The joy or the sorrow,
The ease or the strife

No matter where you go
No matter what you do
No matter who you see
No matter what they do to you

When I’m with you
And when I’m far away
May you never forget
But always hear me say

Remember, my dear,
That I love you still.
I have loved you always
And I always will

Introverts unite!
Separately!
From the comfort of your own homes!

Aww, thank you! I'm so glad I

Aww, thank you! I'm so glad I could bring back so many pleasant memories! I've never actually heard that song in full, but I have heard those lines.
