The porch swing in front of the house is full of cascading memories,
I can see myself sitting on the swing as the sun sets,
The memory of my grandmother reading books to me on that swing,
My grandfather showing my brother all his toy cars that he collected,
My mother and father looking up at the stars,
My entire family gathering around as each one took a turn singing a song,
That porch swing may be gone but it is still full of memories

This piece shows that people can look back and not have to have sad memories about something be gone forever, but that they can have good memories that can live on and on.

I liked it! But the lines were pretty long and the memories themselves could use a little more description. Good Job!
