MEMORIES   © Louise Bailey                     

I feel a warmth around me 
like your presence is so near,
And I close my eyes to visualize your face
when you were here,
I endure the times we spent together 
and they are locked inside my heart.

For as long as I have those memories 
we will never be apart,
Even though we cannot speak anymore 
my voice is always there,
Because every night before I sleep 
I have you in my prayer.
