Forever in My Heart

In loving memory of my mother, Brunhilde Maria Conley

(March 30, 1926 – March 20, 2011)

She will be forever in my heart.

Remember Me

Remember me, not as I am today,

But as I was, in sunshine and in rain.

Striding the fields, and with my dogs again.

And for the future let that memory stay.

It won’t be difficult to have the mind replay

the tape within your head; just let the train of thought

recall that other time, although now far away.

When once the highlight of my day

was at the farm and breathing bracing air

of wind swept field, glad to be alive,

when I still had the energy to drive

to walk for miles in care free company

with dogs and nature, and before the wear

of age had laid it’s leaden hand on me.
