Hearts Don’t Forget

Sometimes our minds may wander
And are bodies aren’t too fit
But one thing you can count on
Hearts don’t forget.

Names we can’t always remember
Til someone mentions it
Then we say “Oh, yeah! Now I remember it.”
But the face our heart never did forget.

Names seldom come to mind
Faces often do
That’s when you know for sure
Your heart felt it too.

We have a lot of memories
But times and dates are vague
You remember what you were doing with the face
Cause your heart won’t let you forget.

Our minds can be like cloudy days
When things aren’t too clear
But once the sun comes out
Our hearts begin to cheer.

Sometimes years go by
Before we see someone again
It doesn’t seem to matter much
They are just as precious as they have always been.

About Jan P

I was born and raised and still live in the great state of Oklahoma in the U.S.A. I live in Oklahoma City and have lived her for over 40 years. Came from a small town in eastern Oklahoma. I was raised on a farm as my daddy was a sharecropper. I worked for the Department of Defense for over 30 years. I am now retired and trying to catch up on all the things I didn't get to do when I worked. I have written poetry for many years, but only recently started writing more since I have found a place where others can enjoy reading it as much as I enjoy writing it.
