Memories hurt,

You remember things

That have been

That could have been

And yet they just won't come back to you

They left the coop

And they aren't going to fly back

Under the safety of the nest

But memories

Keep you going

So that you can reach

For something better

So you can make more memories

That may or may not make you happy

But for sure

There will be painful ones

But having memories to remember

Is what makes it all worth it

Because at least you know that you've



All you could have
