Analysis of Memories

Uhunoma Leonard Iyahen 1986 (United States)



When it come it come
When it's on is on
So I save it when it comes
For future memories
When it's gone.

The memory that you bring
Is on me like marriage ring
the songs we did sing
The guilter with strings

The sands on our feet
While walking in the beach
All that memories come to me
Like the air we freely breathe

The picture by the sea
The smile I did see,
Our gesture towards our own posture, are little things I will never  trade for anything

So When it come it come
When it's on is on
So I save it when it comes
For future memories
When the we in us is gone.
