Bittersweet memories

Flood my jumbled mind

Many happy remembrances

And some of the discouraging kind


I consider whether our lives

Will ever regain what’s been lost

Hoping that the indiscretions of our past

Haven’t come with an irreversible cost


These are the things I ponder

Most every day and night

And my heart is heavy laden

Just about to give up the fight


I often contemplate

How we ever went wrong

And wonder if this daily confusion

Will ever eventually pass along


I believe the atrocities of my past

Stand as a negative influence

Leaving this broken heart of mine

With hardly any reassurance


And I am so very sorry

For building up these impossible walls

Left wondering if the future

Will bring any kind of happiness at all
