Still More Memories

Memories of days gone by
Still vivid in my mind
Time added change to places
Yet pictures stayed behind;
Nostalgic, monumental and kind
To tell the story of my life
When youth once filled them with flames
And now they’re just pictures in frames

    Hmmmm, I guess I am lucky after all. Mostly for having the chance to have lived such a life. Each one of the pictures you see transforms me to the person I was at that time and makes me relive each day.

    And yes dear the pictures you see in this post, presented sequentially, are all the colleges I attended before changing my major to EE, the first picture is where I spent summer school when I first went to USA, the place is at the border of Canada which gave me an access to spend long weekends in Montréal and Québec city. But UT is where I spent most of my scholastic years and graduated (you see photos of that in my last two posts).

    Those were the days my friend
    We thought they’d never end
    We’d sing and dance forever and a day
    We’d live the life we chose
    We’d fight and never lose
    For we were young and sure to have our way

    Today Bo-Racan made my day, I still can’t believe it, I’m ecstatic, and thanks dear for the compliment I honestly don’t know what to say, too much surprises for one day :*

    Sorry sweetie I had to change the alumni photo with the library, something went wrong with that picture and it did not show 😦

    Hi Ayya,

    …Pictures are talking more than else…..

    By the way…

    What I Love About You…

    The sparkle in your eye,
    The warmth of your skin.
    Your breath on my neck,
    That quivers within.

    The touch of your hand,
    The smell of your hair.
    The kindness in your smile,
    That strength in your stare.

    Your kiss on my lips,
    Your body near mine.
    The stroke of your touch,
    That feeling inside.

    The sound of your voice,
    Compassion in your embrace.
    The serenity in your stride,
    The power in your face.

    The calming of your presence,
    The beating of your heart.
    The promise of tomorrow,
    That we may never part.

    The beauty of your kiss,
    and that magic in your touch.
    It is for all these reasons and more,
    Why I love you so much.

    – Averil Binetti –
