Remember when....

by Sheri Wherry
(Lisbon, Ohio USA)

Remember when I was young and so were you

and time stood still and love was all we knew

You were the first, so was I

We made love and then you cried

Remember when

Remember when we vowed the vows

and walked the walk

Gave our hearts, made the start, it was hard

We lived and learned, life threw curves

There was joy, there was hurt

Remember when

Remember when old ones died and new were born

And life was changed, disassembled, rearranged

We came together, fell apart

And broke each other's hearts

Remember when

Remember when the sound of little feet

was the music

We danced to week to week

Brought back the love, we found trust

Vowed we'd never give it up

Remember when

Remember when thirty seemed so old

Now lookn' back it's just a steppin' stone

To where we are,

Where we've been

Said we'd do it all again

Remember when

Remember when we said when we turned gray

When the children grow up and move away

We won't be sad, we'll be glad

For all the life we've had

And we'll remember when

...I remember the FIRST time I heard this song...& I was close to one of our anniversaries...& it was just so true...I remember sobbing in the car....& you telling me...that's what you loved about a song...could just stop me in my tracks...and make me cry. I remember telling you...that I couldn't wait...couldn't wait until we turned gray...and the children moved away...& we'd be glad & not sad! I remember laughing...

I heard that it just took me back. I've heard it many times since you've left...& I usually turn it down...cause I just can't handle those words. But...they are all so true! WE did all of that! YES...we didn't have enough time after the kids moved away...we didn't have near enough time...but we were glad...I'm glad I could share it all with you...& remember when!

Thanks for loving me for as long as you did! Thanks for putting up with my crying jags when I was feeling sappy...for all the times.....that we could...."remember when".

Today that's what I'm doing....remembering when.....

We'll Always Remember When......
by: TrishJ

Very Nice Sheri~ What a beautiful song. It's still hard after 16 months for me to listen to songs that Joe and I loved together.
We have those wonderful memories to hold on to. My marriage wasn't perfect but we loved each other and as you said "put up with" each other. I would marry him all over again even knowing what I know. That's love. I miss him so much.
The one thing that can never be taken from us is the love. That's ours to keep.....forever.
We're all here for each other. I love and I'm so glad I joined you all on face book. Keep up the great writing. It's very healing and comforting. Hugs and blessings to you and your family.
