Of The Good And Bad Memories

Of the past good and bad memories with you remain
That you often visit again and again
Times of happiness and times of tears
Way back there in the long gone years
But the now is what matters and in truth one can say
That we only can live in the moment and day
The past only memories of what might have been or what we should have done
And tomorrow will dawn but not for everyone
Some say we receive from life what is only our due
And that we should learn from the past happens for to be true
In a World where for a minority of winners many have to lose
You cannot have everything that you do choose
Of the past good and bad memories you do retain
But that the now is all that does matter as a truism remain.
