No One Throws Away Memories

No One Throws Away Memories is a title of a song that came to mind when I wrote in Mindful Discarding, that discarding can be an emotional experience for me as I balance my inclination to keep things which hold memories with my practical side that wants to avoid clutter.

No One Throws Away Memories

Long after your phone call has faded away
Long after your warm hello has dimmed
I can’t forget the memories that you sent my way
Those Hallmark memories of yesterday.

Remember my birthday when you were away
Your happy return on Christmas day
That Valentine you went but could not run away
Sweet Hallmark memories of yesterday.

Words that you sent me were so simple yet so true
Dearest, sincerely I’ll never share my life with someone new.

Long after your phone call has faded away
Long after your warm hello has dimmed
I can’t forget the memories that you sent my way
Those Hallmark memories of yesterday

For no one throws a Hallmark card away
‘Cause no one throws away memories…

No One Throws Away Memories is an Original Pilipino Music used as commercial jingle for Hallmark greeting cards in 1979. The theme No One Throws Away Memories was commissioned to Jose Marie Chan with lyrics from Gryk Ortaleza. It was popularized by Richard Tann.
