Favorite Quote:
"When I was 5 years old, my mother always told me that happiness was the key to life. When I went to school, they asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up. I wrote down 'happy'. They told me I didn't understand the assignment, and I told them they didn't understand life."

Things flash through my mind,
And I am sometimes surprised I remember them.
Whatever happens, I know I won't forget a lot of moments;
The memories I have now, I want to have have later on.

There are past events I would rather forget than remember,
But that's not how life works.
Even though they weren't the greatest, I am grateful for the lessons learned;
The memories help me remember those lessons.

The times I remember most are the ones that swept me off my feet,
And allowed me to let my walls down without fear of being hurt.
And though I wish to relive those times,
The memories will be enough for me.

I live for times I remember,
Bitter, sweet, or both.
The times I cherish now, I will never let go of
Because these are the memories I will hold onto.

The author's comments:

There are memories we want to remember, and there are those we would want to let go of. These things happened for a reason, even the times that don't go exactly according to plan, but that's life. We remember these things to learn a lesson, not because we're obsessive about the past.
