Two Sides of Remembering

Remembering can make you happy,
Remembering can make you sad;
It all depends upon
The kind of life you’ve had.

Some things are best written down
So they don’t get lost in your head;
Other things you’ve already dealt with,
Considered what you’ve done and said.

Remembering can be good for you
When you talk to the Lord in prayer;
Both honesty and thankfulness
Show that you truly care.

Remembering can make you sparkle,
Remembering can make you blue;
You’re in charge of your feelings,
The choice is up to you.

Make good memories while you can,
Days of life can’t be undone;
Appreciate opportunity
To remember love, joy, hope, and fun!
