a moment for the cellar

i will never

let these moments fade

for fading becomes forgetful

and i want to remember you

for all the ways you smiled

so that when your a teen

all angry

and you don't know why

i'll have your smile bottled

to pour like a glass of wine

To be able to recall that time of innocence during the teen years is like a breath of fresh air. Hold them close in your heart.

Those treasured moments can last a lifetime...it's been 45 years for me and I can still picture my adult children as tiny tots!

hi alexis ! yes, i have one on the cusp of teenagedom, and sometimes i look at him and i can still see a three yr old boy under all that long hair and his "whatever" attitude, and it's good for me.

I was going to call you and yell at you to post but you did it without me harassing you! :)
She's adorable. I can't imagine her being an angry teenager. If she gets on your nerves, I'll send my teenager Q to talk her down. That'll work right?

I've missed you over here, with your words. DON'T STOP

I have precious memories, too, of my children's growing up years - that does come in handy during certain stages! Even now, with my Grandchildren, I'm trying not to let special memories fade (I hope they will remember, too, with fondness). So good to see your post today Alexis. I think of you often.

Oh, I love this, Alexis! It's beautifully expressed with such a lovely thought!
