once upon a time

Memory is a stranger

It happens now and then.
Unexpectedly and inexplicably
i’m in a familiar place, but
the memories are forgotten.
Hiding, albeit in my mind.

Memories of past times are now
a stranger an old friend, lost.
Talking to myself muttering trying
to remember.I know there was a time
when I laughed, played, loved, and lost.
In this Memory I’m  a stranger.

All I can do is walk away, stop striving
to remember old memories, live for today.'
The good times are now, this moment.
Seize the day, and be the best you can be.
Let memories be a stranger to me this day.
Tomorrow- I shall have forgotten yesterday.
