I Am Guardian Of My Memories

by Barb Hensongispsaca

I sit here to contemplate all of my past
while wondering where I will visit today.
My life's almost gone, do I want more to last?
Or should I make plans to be walking away?

I see all the angels of yesterday's year.
I hear many sounds even those that are fine.
I hold close the mem'ries, I cherish so dear.
I whisper the words that will make this all mine.

I cry painful tears dredged from sorrow's own soul.
I laugh at the moon as it shows me her way.
I fear that my life will not reach its set goal.
I dream without thoughts of my next sun-crossed day.

I pretend to know things of which I do not.
I wonder each day if I'm giving my best.
I want to keep passion alive and still hot.
I feel I am failing at passing life's test.

The sun reaches down trying to console me,
the waves bid my soul to come walk in the sea,
the ground sends me bits of her warm energy.
I sit here and wonder what this day will be.
