Life with Lane, my life through words, pictures, and food!

Before I start I just want to say Happy Good Friday to everyone again. This isn’t any normal Friday, it’s good Friday! The day Jesus was crucified and died for our sins. So yes, this isn’t just any normal Friday.

I just found out that April is National Poetry Month here in Orlando. So, I thought I would share some of my poems two days each week for the rest of the month. I never thought I would be someone that writes poetry until I joined that site called FanStory. There were competitions weekly and to become a better writer, I would enter into the contest. I never won any of the contest but I wrote a lot of poems.

Today, I am going to share a poem with you called Lost Memories. When there was a poetry competition, there would always be a random topic. This was so long ago, I’m not sure what the topic was but I’m assuming it was memories or family.

Unfamiliar familiar faces 
High cheek bones 
Full bottom lip 
Heart shaped faces 
All just like mine 
Bound by blood 
But yet so distant 
Cousins hugging me I’ve never met 
Aunt and Uncles telling me how I’ve changed 
Yet I have no knowledge of them 
Lovely grandmother in the corner 
Looking lost staring at people she has no recollection of 
Fight tears wishing I could help her 
Faint memories of her holding me when I was little 
Baking cookies and cakes for her special babies 
Sad to leave people I barely even knew

Thank you for reading my poem, let me know your thoughts. Follow me on Instagram @lifewithlane14 Have a wonderful blessed day and always be kind.
