Saying for the Memory boxes

Postby missgamecock » Mon Feb 06, 2006 10:50 am

Ok, I said I would post the saying that I found and love to include in the memory boxes. Here goes:

Treasures of the Heart

There is no greater treasure than what's held within this chest,
More valuable than diamonds, silver, yes even gold,
The joining of two hearts, the sum of two souls,
No greater treasure, nor story ever told,
A gift to you is this chest, to place within
The treasures of your heart and your memories to hold

I am sure you will not see this post, I was looking up some of my mothers poems and this popped up on a link.....I am glad you found comfort in her words.......Camille Labusohr is my mother who passed in 2002...she wrote this poem..I am very thankful and blessed that her words have lived on and have given comfort to others as I know this is what she would have wanted. I really felt the need to write this to you as you have touched my heart by my mothers words... Be blessed and I am truly sorry for your pain.

The importance and meaning of our memory boxes can hardly be expressed, but this poem does it so well. Thank you for sharing it with us. Sending you hugs
