Bitter Sweet Memories


A warm breeze, a lovely old scent, a soft enchanting song,
Visions in sepia colors yet so charming and colorful, voices and echoes that tremble the heart, suddenly a surf from the deep comes and splashes the shore.

If we are not meant to see our future in advance, shouldn't we cherish what we have seen. Ironically, it's difficult to handle.

Bad memories are hard but good ones are harder, the sweet memories that become bitter because they have passed, because of the years.

Time leaves its traces and shades just like the ones on the pages of an old book.
The people that we wonder will we ever see again. The photos of the places that still exist yet they are never the same.

These memories are carved deep in the soul, covered with the daily activities, future plans, problems and so many things we indulge ourselves in.
And the moment we decide to sit back and relax a little, they come, black you out, stops the time and attack like a tornado scatters the present like the dust that covers an old book. The carved memories became exposed and aches in an enjoyable way.

Only one thing gives them the lovable taste again the fact that they were once sweet and HOPE.

    Memories are made to be remembered some are good some are bad but they are yours and from these memories your personnality has shaped and your senses have taken a form.

    These are wonderful thoughts.

    For me, my warm memories are harder to ponder for the same reasons you have kindly written with this post.

    I though I was the only person who felt saddness when looking at photographs of very happy times, or recalling wonderful memories.

    Thank you, this was another very provocative writing.

    Hechkok,
    "Memories are made to be remembered some are good some are bad but they are yours and from these memories your personnality has shaped and your senses have taken a form."
    Wow ... that's so right. yes I do look forward to the future and hope to have better memories too. there is no contradiction :)

    Emory,
    Thanks a lot for your very nice words. I am glad too I am not the only one who thinks warm memories are harder. thanks again for your encouragement.
