The sadness of the present days
is locked and set in time,
and moving to the future
is a slow and painful climb.
But all the feelings that are now
so vivid and so real
can’t hold their fresh intensity
as time begins to heal.
No wound so deep will ever go
entirely away;
Yet every hurt becomes
a little less from day to day.
Nothing can erase the painful
imprints on your mind;
But there are softer memories
that time will let you find.
Though your heart won’t let the sadness
simply slide away.
The echoes will diminish
Even though the memories stay.

~~Bruce B.Wimer~~
