UNDER THE RAINBOW
Sample Poem

PEEL BACK THE PAGES

Peel back the pages
and you'll be sure to find...
A treasure of memories
stored deep in your mind.

Memories of a family
with a young Mom and Dad.
Memories of a childhood
with good times and bad.

Memories of school days
with teachers and books.
Of sidewalks and shopping malls,
or meadows and brooks.

Of brothers and sisters,
if you were blessed with any.
I have mountains of memories,
for my siblings were many.

Memories of jobs
that came and that went.
Memories of holidays
and how they were spent.

So peel back the pages
and don't be afraid.
Life is made up of
all the memories we've made.
