Thank you for the joy
Thank you for the tears
Thank you for the laughter
Thank you for the years
The time seemed so short
But memories echo forever on
The sound of my heart beating
In only a moment all is gone
Left with nothing to hold
No keepsake on a string
Alone with only me
Death does have a sting
Mists of uncertainty surround you
The darkness hounds you
When madness confounds you
Just BELIEVE, it is all you can do!
“Lord, I believe; help my unbelief!” ~Mark 9:24
I think we all have that one special item we cherish. Something gifted to us by someone we love, someone who has passed, someone we want to remember. A locket from a friend, a ring from your grandmother, a watch from your fatherâ€¦or maybe it is simply a memory, a moment in time that we will never forget. Write about your special keepsakeâ€¦

I agree with you. We have to believe and as long as we do, then we will be okay. There is nothing wrong with a little faith and believing in something good. ♥
Thank you Kellie! Never let go of faith and belief, sometimes it is all we have when there are no answers to the questions that heckle our minds.
Mark … this so touched my heart this morning … thanks for sharing you wonderful poem.
Thank you Annie! Seems the best writing always springs from real life and this one definitely did. But I cling to believing.
You are so amazing Mark, and every time I read your words I am fully reminded of that again!
Who’s the man! 🙂 Thanks Paco!
To loose faith, to not believe, is to be truly alone.
I so agree Heidi! Must hold onto that, thanks for stopping by!
Awesome poem, Mark! I agree 100%!
Thanks Charles! Appreciate you stopping by!
very touching, beautiful poem
Thank you Doris, I believe to loose faith and a belief is to truly lose all. Even if there are no answers to the questions.
Belief and prayer is so important!!
