Poem Grandma Green wrote on a small piece of paper

Ever Close in Mind and Heart [1]

(Marjorie Frances Ames)

No further away then a picture
A smile or remembered phrase
Our loved ones live in memory.
So close in so many ways.
For how often does a sunset
Bring nostalgic thoughts to mind
Of moments that our loved ones shared
In days now left behind!
How often has a flower
Or an crystal autumn sky
Brought golden recollections
Of happy days gone by!
Yes, memory has a magic way
Of keeping loved ones near,
Ever close in mind and heart
Are the ones we hold most dear.

Notes:
  1. This must have been written shortly after Grandpa died []
