Polaroid These Moments
~Marge Tindal~ 1999

'Twas the night after Christmas
I'm thinking to recall,
when presents were stuffed
in closets down the hall.

The merriment over,
the family and friends gone,
a return to the realm
of a now-quiet home.

The visions of memories
stir me to write
of moments like these
not lost in the night.

A daughter whose laughter
fills up the room
with caring and sharing,
no place for gloom.

Oldest son with his chosen
wife-soon-to-be,
locked in an embrace
for the camera to see.

Middle son
sharing his delight
of the new-found love,
in his heart shining bright.

Youngest son,
grinning broadly,
at the very idea
of his two brother's folly.

The father, the mother
and of course, the brother,
gathered together
for this Christmas with others.

Polaroid the moment
of a family of love
reminded of family gone
to Heaven above.

Sister Shari not present
to see us this year.
We remember her love
with angelic cheer.

In Heaven, I just know
there's a Christmas tree
decorated with angels
of my memory.

Mother, Dad, brother Mike,
and sister Shari join in,
singing songs sweetly heard
of times that have been.

For all things we are thankful
we pause to recall,
as friends touched our lives
with a gift or a call.

I'm driven to exclaim
as they come into view ...
Thank God for memories !
Thank God for YOU !

Wonderfully written. I made me feel kind of sad though. Good poem.

A sadly touching happiness.  I can only hope the Christmas Day will find you with yet another bright memory.  My thoughts will be with you this holiday season.

RSEvans -
Thank you for a thoughtful read.
My thoughts with you in return
this Christmas.

Pepper-
How sweet ~picture perfect~is a
good description of how I feel.
Bless you, Pepper.  Your heart
is of great magnitude.

Local Rebel -
Yes, 'photo-finish' is an apt
description ...
It's a Dead Heat ...
all winning memories, head to head.

*Love to all ~Marge~
