There are moments in our life

we 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 sadness

still, would we fully understand

another’s pain

unless sometime within our lives

we’d felt the same?

The dust of time drifts sloftly

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 we did,

or did not do.

Still, would we really want to live Without all,

for we’re a part of everything

that we recall.
