Before my memory starts to pass
I thought I would take a memoir writing class
Jill the teacher was there to jog
Distant memories that sometimes were lost in the fog.
The class turned out to be quite a caper
And my early years are now down on paper!
Have you ever looked at a person wondering how they spent their years? We heard stories of adventure, shared laughter and tears.
With a class of about ten, I enjoyed hearing the others
Stores of lives, parents, sisters and brothers.
It’s great to give life’s memories a bit of a sift
Meeting interesting people and Jill…what a gift
My memoir won’t be a best seller, of that have no fear,
But is spells out who I am, and that I was here.
