A poem about memoir writing 

by Karen Larsen

Your kids are all grown, grandchildren are here

Some live far away others are near

You don’t get to talk like folks used to do

You want them to know you, to know what is true

But how can you tell them what's on your mind?

What's gone on through the years? They're one of a kind!

Do you know where to start? Do you know what to do?

To tell your own story; what things made you you?

Don't worry! Don't fret! Don't give it a care!

Generation Connection soon will be there

In less time than you thought, we can open that door

And help you write your memoir—your own family lore

How you met your husband—how you found your wife

And then what you did with the rest of your life

Where you lived, what you learned, what you did for fun

What’s important to you when all’s said and done

And if writing’s not something that you like to do

We’ll listen as you tell it and write it for you
