"Memory Lane" by Diana L Crawford

As I travel down
my memory’s lane
there are both good
and bad to ponder
sometimes they are like
perfume for my mind
and others quite
The joy of motherhood
and family offers
the most precious gifts
so many days of fun,
hugs, joy and sadness
filled with innocence divine
I journey on 
to remembering
the life of a young girl
morphing from 
a pot-smoking, tree-hugging 
rock-n-roll hippie
into a young adult 
proudly serving in the 
Women’s Army Corps
far away from all 
she’d known
And last stop 
my childhood 
where the deepest of love
could be found 
on grandpa’s lap
yet one still sprinkled 
with the bitter way
of a fatherless child
Memory lane is filled
with many treasures
uniquely mine – 
an umbrella on a rainy day
