Everyone has them, we make more every day.
Though unbidden at times, our minds obediently display
Some are quite wonderful, insisting we smile
Others, nostalgic, take us back for a while
Then there are those that we’d rather forget
The bad ones, the memories that leave our cheeks wet
If we are smart, we will learn from them all
About life, faith and friendship, and to answer God’s call
How to fail, yet get up again, stronger than before
How to embrace this brief life til’ we reach yonder shore
I am thankful for memories, no matter which kind they might be
You see, the power of a memory is a wondrous thing to me.
