Memories! I smile, I weep

Every single day
I open the treasure of your memories
I smile, I weep
Some make me yearn for more
Some hurt deep, oh so deep!
I whirl, and whirl, 
And they chase
No, how can I erase?
So, I make a choice, 
And move to the lovely ones
Memories churn
Take me with its wings
Emotions glisten in my eyes
My lips tremble to smile
The moment I feel you beam
And your voice ring

Yes, those memories make us smile and weep....sigh. But thank heavens we have them! I loved this poem.

Holding on to the loveliest memories is healthy, never forgetting lessons learned from the not so lovely is healthy too.

A beautiful poem, especially these lines: "Every single day
I open the treasure of your memories"

Memories are so important as they speak of love and happiness as well of loss and sorrow but they tell of our life lived and I would hate to lose them. What a beautiful poem!
