I have a truckload of our memories,
but my fingers are enough
to count the real ones.

  1. I loved this. So short, so powerful, so typical of your poetry! It’s sad to think that they have so few cherished memories they could count them all with just their fingers.

  2. Oh my !!! Oh my!!!! An experience which no one ever should face in life… Being in a relationship with a wrong person is the worst thing which can happen to someone.
    Loved it, Rosema ❤ ❤ ❤

  3. I’ve held on to loads of individual memories, but as I get older I realize the cacophony of those memories can easily drown out individual moments to be cherished. Fabulous ❤
