A Six-Word Memoir® is the story of your life—some part of it or all of it—told in exactly six words.

In classrooms and boardrooms, churches and synagogues, veteran's groups and across the dinner table, Six-Word Memoirs have become a powerful tool to catalyze conversation, spark imagination or simply break the ice.

Here on Six Words, we offer a simple platform to share the short, sharp story of your life, as well as provide daily prompts to share your six-word takes on the topics of our times.

More than half a million short stories have been shared here. Read more about six.

So give six a try—and make your words count.

Time took him. Left his love.

Time ravaged his body and mind, and eventually took him from us.

But Dad’s love lives on in his legacy to me and my children.

Final sigh of ocean as it rests on distant shore.
Empty boardwalk echoes with footsteps gone before.
A memory of a melody, the carousel’s last song.
Like summer fading in the night, I’ll miss you when you’re gone.

Love you, Dad. Always...
