Poem of the Week: Fond Memories in Song

Fond Memories in Song
January 30, 2015

You don’t know what you’ve got until it’s gone—
A sad truth, I know, but truth all the same.
That’s why I keep fond memories in song.

Time keeps marching forth, whether right or wrong,
Leading us away from both bliss and pain.
You don’t know what you’ve got until it’s gone.

Being mortals, we’re thus forced to move on
And follow time through sun, snow, wind, and rain.
That’s why I keep fond memories in song.

Pleasant times may come, but never for long.
Cling too tightly to them, you’ll go insane.
You don’t know what you’ve got until it’s gone.

Besides, who knows what else might come along
To flush our fixations straight down the drain?
That’s why I keep fond memories in song.

Pack your good thoughts, then, and bring them along
The next time you must march through strife and pain.
You don’t know what you’ve got until it’s gone.
That’s why I keep fond memories in song.
