River of Meories

My mother and father’s house
stands empty and lonely.
It’s walls contain only faint whispers
of what was once alive
with laughter and reminiscences
on Sunday afternoons.
They taught us
love
morality
honesty
and
compassion
for our fellow man.
But above all,
they taught us the importance
of being faithful to God
by example of their goodness.
I miss what we once shared
in our housethat is gone.
But nothing can erase
the river of memories
that flood my soul.
Those are eternal.

"But nothing can erase
the river of memories

...thoughts that uphold...Sunday memories...in revered walls of silence...still speak...in an every day world... and sometimes forgotten...is the eternal faith...which floods the soul with light.
You have penned...perhaps the wishes of many...on this page...to listen to the laughter they once heard...and in those walls...now hear no sound.
beautiful write and memories here David...
