Memories to YouTube Rewind 2015 
In the end all the couple had was love and memories 
YouTube celebrates the memories of another great year 

Memories (poem) 

Who knew the dance of memories
Each star reflected memories
Each heartbeat brought more memories
As lovers took their stroll
They sailed upon their memories
Each kiss was built on memories
Each scent another whim to please
As love fulfilled its roll
Delighting in their memories
Where others who had sought for these
In hopes to bring about some ease
To unrest in their soul
Who knew the long and dreary nights
Who knew of endless appetites
Who knew of candles without lights
As darkness took control
Two lovers lost in hopelessness
So torn from what they once caress
Won’t heaven hear their loneliness
As teardrop take their toll
When all had brought them to their knees
A gentle song refreshed the breeze
A pathway to those memories
Which kept the lovers whole

To this couple, memories were important. Note: how "memories" disappear as we get closer to the conflict stanzas and reappears in the resolution stanza. The poem is divided into two sets of rhymes. One set, which compose the first three lines of each stanza, cast what is going on with the couple. The other set, which is in the forth line, gives an outside statement of what's going on and ties the poem together.
On he subject of memories: I started Poetry And Viral Videos as an experiment into something different. I don't consider myself a great poet. My strength is in my variety, my word wizardry and my surprises. Poetry And Viral Videos, as I stated when I started out, was a way to use entertaining video to maybe help get people exposed to the world of poetry, as well as sharing my poems with other. The form, layout and structure is due, in the most part, on the suggestions of my fans. And I thank them.  Allene Angelica, of I Wish I Was A Rampaging Queen, got me started in the world of blogging. Finally, I thank you all for stopping by and keeping this thing going.

We need a memory song: The Vogues "Moments to Remember" 

What got all these memory sentiments started 

YouTube, the video-sharing website, was launched on February 14, 2005 by founders Chad Hurley, Steve Chen, and Jawed Karim. It was bought by Google in November 2006 for $1.65 billion. Most of the content on YouTube has been uploaded by individuals, but media corporations including CBS, the BBC, Vevo, Hulu, and other organizations offer some of their material via YouTube, as part of the YouTube partnership program. It has become a YouTube custom to celebrate another entertaining year with a "Thank You" video for its fans, highlighting some memorable moments. 
With 2015 coming to a close, here's YouTube's 2015 celebration. "YouTube Rewind: Now Watch Me 2015 | #YouTubeRewind" 

Thank you for stopping by and your kind support
