Regretted Memories

Childhood memories swept away
Wave goodbye to each one
Hug and say you’ll see them soon
But you know that’s never true

They’ll meet new people, friends,
And then memories
You’re forgotten
And their memory is replaced by that new best friend of theirs

And your memories are replaced
By bitterness and loathsome
Regret and hurt
And anguish for all the time lost for them

Again… and again…
Until there’s nothing left to remember

It brings me both joy and heartbreak reading this. I know the feeling.

Your writing is a delight to read. I truly love this, and cannot explain my love for your works in words.
