a Memory
came back today.
i thought for sure
It'd gone away.

i knew what
It had to say.
i didn't want to listen.
knew i'd pay.

"thought You were dead".
"what brings You back my way?".
"gonna' say what's already been said?".
"why don't Ya' just go away?".

"just thought I'd hang around awhile",
It said with a smile.
"let ya' remember the Past".
"make sure my memory lasts".

and so It stayed.
and yes i payed
for the mistakes i made.

for my past.
some Memories
just seem to last
and last.

They don't go away.
least not today.

hey steve,
i know what ya mean...but you know, i found that by recalling those memories, and facing them head on..they lose their sting, when weighed against the good things of Now!..
wishing you pleasant thoughts.
