Writers Quote Wednesday Writing Challenge – Memories

miracle

It is Colleen’s turn again this week for hers and Ronovan’s Writer’s Quote on Wednesday Challenge. She has given us ‘memories’ as our prompt word. I have found the perfect quote to base my poem on this week:

Sometimes you will never know the value of a moment until it becomes a memory.

–  Dr Seuss

I remember going to my Nan’s house

When I was very small

Her and my aunty were so strict

I would hardly talk at all!

Yet she would bring us cups of cocoa

and lay on lots of food

But I was on my best behaviour

It wouldn’t do to be rude!

Walking around the harbour

Days spent on the beach

Those carefree days of childhood

That are so now far out of reach.

Long and nauseous coach rides,

Those made me feel so bad

But in the end were worth it

As I got to see my Dad!

Childhood friends and fun times

Muddy and soaking wet

Giggling with my girlfriends

Over a gorgeous boy I’d met!

My first job in the café

The worst waitress that ever was

Trying to avoid the groping hands

Of my rather randy boss!

Married for the first time-

Then the second, now number three

Giving birth to a daughter

Spending time with family

Finally passing my driving test

Life is full of moments

that have meant so much to me

And they are always with me

As my precious memories.
