Forgotten Memories


Forgotten memories is all we have
Mixed and matched with dreams and fantasies
They’re all the same, forgotten, rotten
With no one else to think of them but us

When we were young we thought
We will remember this forever
But soon we found that memories
Are meant to be forgotten

Someday we’ll find our way
Back to that forbidden bay
Where dreams and memories are all the same
They’re mixed and matched, can’t tell the difference

And no one cares if they’re untrue
Because it was love what brought them through
One can’t erase what has been written on memories
All the love, the smiles, the bliss, the tears, the fears

Memories, forgotten or not
They are the best way
From keeping us astray
They make us not forget who we really became

We all go back to them
Pretending to forget
That what we had, we no longer do
And that what we felt was undeniable

Forgotten memories is all we have
To keep our lives moving on
We’ll live now on until forever
Remembering, discovering
All our forgotten memories

    Angelica, it may sound corny but you have LITERALLY touched my heart so deeply. I am on #39 of 130 poems by you. Please don't stop writing. Your gift is to put into words what we all feel and cannot express. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Percy Bysshe Shelley

O World! O Life! O Time!
On whose last steps I climb,
Trembling at that where I had stood before;
When will return the glory of your prime?
No more -Oh, never more!
