Memories by Ellie Starks


The passages of time
The pictures in our minds
The flashes of the past
Some good, some bad

Times of bubbling laughter
Of smiles and little jokes
Or sorrow and regret
And broken hopes

The pieces of our life
Through our time here on earth
Memories stay with us
In our minds and in our hearts

Thank you.

I love to hang on to the happy flashes of the past and leave the bad ones behind. Life is too beautiful to let the bad flashes mar them. Nice writing.

I enjoyed reading your poem very much. I have read your bio, too. You do, indeed, have a natural knack with words. I haven't been on Hubpages for quite some time and I used to love writing here (2011 to 2013 or 2014.) Your poem and the enthusiasm you expressed in your little note about yourself is inspiring to me. I might start writing again. A writer never feels quite complete unless they're writing. You keep writing, Ellie. Writing brings joy and also understanding of oneself.
