The Memory Keeper...
As the daughter of "The Keeper"
Will I be able to properly do
What was always deemed to happen -
Will I be expected to?
Photos, and letters in boxes
A treasure trove to hold
Within them, they tell a story
As my life without enfolds
Knowledge is power, they say
Can the saying be true?
Am I the new "Memory Keeper"?
Will I have the same fate as you?
The memories you have locked deep inside
Hidden, kept just out of reach
With continuous access denied
Given random access to each
Combined, they tell the stories
Passed down, from then to now
Will they be lost in the shuffle?
What if my "rememberer" forgets how??!
Will all the memories be lost forever?
I hope the important ones pass the test
Am so glad I'm not the only one "Keeping"
That others will remember the rest
If we all do our part to remember
I have confidence the important will last
So remember to do all your "Keeping"
For we all can learn from the past...
