A Lesson In History

Pictures are but memories,
of times that use to be!
Good times and bad,
happy and sad!
For reminiscing of times long past,
times you knew would never last! 
Of those you loved and who have died,
and those that are still alive!
Some of them will make you cry,
some will make you ask yourself why!
Some memories kept close to heart,
and some tear your heart apart!
Without our memories,
would we have a use to be?
I think not we wouldn’t remember,
even that of a loving touch so tender!
We wouldn’t I’m sure be alive,
we wouldn’t know how to survive!
Pictures help us know who we are,
and remember the times back so far!
So every picture you look at and see,
Remember your life is full of history!
