MEMORIES OF YOU
When my heart is sad and low and I am very blue,
I seem to find a ray of joy in my memories of you.
And when each thing I do goes wrong and life doesn’t appear worthwhile,
Memories of you appear and cause my heart to smile.
For memories are my recourse, they fill my empty heart,
And when most other comfort fails they give me a new start.
And just as if by magic I continue on my way,
Doing what I’m meant to do and living day by day.
And that is why I value them and always keep them new,
My golden living memories, my memories of you.
