Memories from the backyard garden!

I look back into my memories,
like a stroll in to the backyard garden,
memories of both bad and good ,
like weeds and like lilies,
treasuring the good from the bad.
Memories of warm togetherness and missing aways,
like the grass,
that withers away as you laze to dwell in its beauty.The moments that didn't count but turned to be unique,
like the moth in the garden that turned to be a butterfly!

Everyday is a new chance and a blessing,
like the sun shines its grace anew every dawn,

every past is a memory cherishable,
like the soil that losses it fertility , that never returns.
through the past to the present
and so to the future,
its you,Dear God, that makes everything beautiful and cherishable.

Love the way you describe looking at your memories. it makes them seem like more is there than what really is. (that sounds confusing haha)

I like the message. The delivery not so much. I like the point of it and it speaks. I just wish you didn't use like good and bad just add more colorful words and it will totally amp it up.

Memories...a beautiful topic, and you conveyed it so well. I have to admit your word choice is really good and so are your themes. They're also so relateable.

I love the comparrision you've made. But if you could cut the first stanza into 2 individual stanza's then I am sure it'll be more  catchy! I love the poem on the whole! TRUE AND ORIGINAL!
