In My Pocket

I have memories in my pocket.
They rattle among the change.

My memories of you are treasures I carry wherever I go.

They are stored in bits and pieces, parts of a beautiful whole
They give me comfort when I think I am alone.

Yes, I have memories in my pocket, like so much other stuff I keep there.

But of all the treasures I have, it’s the memories of you that are the most precious.

May the Grace of God be with you all in your time of grieving. God placed Ivy in your lives for what seemed like a short time. Please remember although you loved Ivy dearly; God loved him first. Rest in Peace Ivy God always calls his children home when their work on earth is finished.
