"Dealing With Memories" by jaybird1
When I'm in bed, awaiting sleep
into my mind sweet mem' ries creep.
They flow like currents in life's stream
and some are like a hurtful dream.

The scenes portrayed, now gone away,
gone forever, like yesterday,
they visit me unasked, but clear.
The sad, the bad, the sweet and dear.

The sad ones I can soon forget.
Oftimes others appear and yet,
what hurts the most are precious, dear.
They sadden heart and bring a tear.

O! Dear, sweet Lord take them away.
I'll deal with them another day.



Author Notes
Precious memories, how they linger and the dearest
ones hurt the most, in recall-Jaybird
Pays one point and 2 member cents.
