The Past Lives In Us - Poem by Francis Duggan

Just like the lines ofa known and famed song
Wherever we go to the past goes along
Even the memories we would rather forget
Are living in us much to our regret
Some may remind you the past it has gone
But in you as you know it is living on
And will be with you until the day you do die
For to believe different would be to believe your own lie
Only in death of memories of the past we will be free
It lives on in you and it lives on in me
And for as long as the gift of memory we retain
In memory we will go to the past again
The past lives in us and in us will stay
For as long as we live until our last night and day.
