Bittersweet memories of you
are still deep in my heart.
I wish that I could forget you,
and make a fresh new start.
Every time I think I’ve succeeded,
and left you in my past,
those bittersweet memories come rushing back,
like waves rolling fierce and fast.
Bittersweet memories make me want
to reach out and touch you again.
Curiosity is growing and I can’t help
but wonder how your life has been.
Bittersweet memories bring to me
happiness and sadness at the very same time.
As I reflect back on a time long ago,
when I was yours and you were mine.
