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 on its wings
Emotions glisten in my eyes
My lips tremble to smile
The moment I feel you beam
And your voice ring
