The Importance Of Memories

At 98, I've learned a lot of things, but none has been more important than being able to put negative memories behind and keep the positive ones. I see too many people who still dwell on the bad things in their lives. Forgiveness is necessary in many cases, to put things at ease. I've never been rich in money but so very rich in friends. Although, due to my age, I only have 3 good friends left. We share many good memories.

A man cannot live without reflection. It gives us oxygen. The past always lies in our heart. Its recollection may make us pleased or sad. Thank you, Alora Knight.

Reflections

default ©

Published: October 17, 2019

There are moments in our life we'll always treasure.
Tiny fragments from our past, remembered pleasure.
Maybe it will be a song somebody sings,
Or the fragrance of a rose, a memory brings.

Somewhere in the background of our mind
Comes reflections of the love we left behind.
Though it's nice to think of days that brought us gladness,
Yet we can't escape the ones that brought us sadness.

Still, would we fully understand another's pain
Unless sometime within our lives we'd felt the same?
The dust of time drifts softly through the years.
Just to read our book of life may bring forth tears.

For seldom does one live a lifetime through
Without regretting things they did or did not do.
Yet would we really want to live without it all?
For we're a part of everything that we recall.
