Buried Treasure

Memories are like a buried treasure

embracing our hearts ,

making us smile,

offering us a glimpse of the past,

reminding us of times long gone,

inviting us to be immortal for the moment,

erasing the sadness,

soothing our soul along the way.

A picture is worth a thousand words, but a memory is priceless.

Don't Take Moments for Granted

Each day that passes by teaches me a lesson. The most important one is not to take moments for granted.

Cherish each moment you are given. Embrace the one's you love. Enjoy your life to the fullest.

Make memories to last a lifetime.

"Building Blocks"

Memories are building blocks

gluing us together

for eternity.


Forever lingering in the distance,

waiting to be recalled

when the timing is right.


Hugging us with love,

taking us on a journey

time left behind.

A moment lasts for seconds, but the memories last forever.
