a poem by Elizabeth Padillo Olesen, Denmark

Suddenly the mind remembers
Of special times, the good times
The heart longs for the return
Of the special times, the good times.

And yet the mind remembers
That what happened is of the past
What makes them alive in the present
Are the pleasant memories in the mind.
