Memories are like Diamonds

Updated on August 11, 2020

I'm a writer, a poet, a dreamer. Born and raised in New York City. I now live in Daytona Beach, Florida with my wonderful cat Sid.

Memories are like diamonds,

that sparkle in the night.

Just like precious jewels,

each worth its weight in gold.

Photos we treasure,

bring to us a smile,

of a moment -

now frozen in time.


Memories shine like gold,

reflected by the sun.

Happy days remembered,

through songs that bring back old times.

They are so special,

bonding us with our loved ones.

Even if they’ve become -

just a tender memory.

Everything we touch,

every precious item we have,

can bring us a tear or a smile,

because memories mean so much.


Memories are like diamonds,

they never tarnish.

Each time we choose to remember,

a new memory arises.


Memories like diamonds,

twinkle in the sunlight.

Just as quickly they can fade -

when clouds roll by.

Cherish the memories you have

and never let them grow old.

Keep them close by -

it’s easy if only you try.


Memories are like diamonds,

radiant in brilliant colors,

reminding us of gladder times,

which brought so many smiles.

      Beautiful! I have many things around me, such as those you mention here - photos, objects, scenes in my head - that bring back wonderful memories. It's important to remember and cherish as these things are passed on to others and are the fibre of our being.

      Thank you, Shauna. Memories are the best.

      So true, Bill. You never forget and the memories are like looking back at it all and having another revisit. You have been blessed with another chance at love.
