Each little poem
             or each little rhyme
Has a story to tell
             of a certain time.
You never know when
             A good time has passed
Will be one of those memories
             that in your heart lasts.
You can take photos
             and put them in a book,
But a poem tells a story
             of the photo you took.
And when you read each poem,
             you will know
How much that special thing or time
             In your heart did grow.

I give it 4 stars, usually I don't really care for poems that rhyme on each line, but, this was different. It has that feel good rhythm to it that makes you smile.
