With Memories--By Pam Murray--Canada

With Memories

Living among the shadows
Wind in the new Spring leaves
I finally reawaken.
Gone is the one who grieves.

I suddenly thought about you
And realized you are gone.
But life is still full around me
And parts of you linger on.

I hear you at dawn. I listen
As you say it’s time to go
On with the dreams we once had.
Now it is time to grow

Just like the earth around me.
There’s so much life to give.
With memories wrapped around me
I can begin to live.

Born in Calgary, Alberta, Pam Murray has been writing poetry since the mid-1960’s.  She was married for over 41 years and has two daughters, a son-in-law, and a grandson.  Pam has been published in a variety of venues.  Her proudest writing accomplishment was a poem she wrote for a United Way fundraiser, which was later framed with a French translation and hung on the wall of the legislature in Ottawa, Canada.  To her, poetry is a transposition of a vision she sees in her mind.  Writing and crocheting are her passions.
