Memories of Days Gone Bye

Sweet Memories

Sweet memories clutter my mind,
Though distantly I can see,
A glimmer in the mirror of
My mother, but it’s only me.

How she gathered eggs,
in her White apron so tenderly
Or her homemade biscuits and gravy
For my brother, sister, and me.

A grandmother’s smile
For all the world to see
I’m in her loving arms as
She gently cradles me.

A special aunt whose gift
Of praise, for only me to see
Who sang that sweet lullaby
In the Sweet Bye And Bye for me.

I gather sweet memories of
Days I’ll always see
in my mother’s so many faces
Who are all a part of me.

She touches a child’s life
For a brief moment you see
For we’re to pass it on
A part of you and me.

So many special faces
And collective memories
We humble ourselves before you
Lord, and give special thanks
For our Mother and Thee.

Such sweet memories of days gone bye. ~Jeanette

  1. I shared this on my face book page. It reminded me of my mother and how she had a flock of chickens and sold eggs. I remember her letting my sister and me gather the eggs to sell for fabric to make us a dress. We walked two miles to the store to sell the eggs and purchase the fabric. You see, it was a country store and had in stock the things which country folk would need. I have pictures of Ashridge, Al. and the store where we bartered the eggs for fabric. So many sweet memories of my life revolve around this little community and the school were I attended from Primer grade through sixth grade. I thank God for the blessing of memory. Hope you have a wonderful day. Jane W. Smith
