Memories of Loved Ones


When memories of loved ones make an attack,

Let the tears flow, don’t hold them back.

Once you find the tears have come and gone,

Then happy memories will come along.

This can happen for many years,

First sad memories then the tears.

But as time goes flying by,

You’ll find there’s less times you want to cry.

The funny and happy memories will come in,

And you’ll start remembering them with family and telling friends.

There’ll be times the laughter will start,

Raising spirits in everyone’s heart.

For laughter is like a medicine,

Once the door to your heart you let it in.

It releases endorphins deep in your brain,

Helping ever so much to ease your pain.

Only after you personally experience this fact,

You will hardly ever want sadness to come back.
