I Choose To Remember Our Love

Hello, my lost friend 
I know we don’t talk
With each other anymore
Except for stony greetings 
I know we’ve been apart
For longer than I thought we would 

Now I would like to tell you 
That I choose to remember our love
Because our wonderful memories
Gave me a lifetime’s worth of joy
I choose to remember our love 
Because I confess I played a part
In hurting our friendship 

Now, most of all
I choose to remember our love 
Because I choose to completely forget
All about the bad parts of the past
Because, what’s the point 
Of holding on to grudges 
When it’s hurting you alone
And no one else?

    I agree, sometimes we need to look past the thorns and focus on the flower

    This one strikes home for many stories of mine- from deaths to arguments, this mentality of letting go of the loss and holding onto the good times is crucial.
