The memories locked in each heart Could bring so many joys.. It could take us back to golden times When we could be happy, and rejoice.
But if the past that’s in my brain Is likely to cause me pain… It’s not surprising if I lack The ability to often look back.
I’ll not turn and look at the past When each present day is better than the last. My heart for peaceful serenity strives: Not to remember pain in my, and others’, lives.
