Do you Have Bittersweet Memories of Love?

Is it possible to forget even with the passing of time? In unguarded moments the past have a way of sneaking up on us. Bitter Sweet Memories Bitter sweet are the memories of you fading in and out from my distant past Like murmuring waves calling out to shore a plaintive cry of love unrequited They are the shadows gathering in vengeance a staccato of grief and sorrow the unforgiving pain closes in Light is overcome by darkness we find comfort in forgetting I flee the bitter truth drinking from the cup of oblivion Hic!

@josie_ It was always one sided for me while I was growing up. One sided crushes are very common. I finally got lucky!

@flapiz _I think it's called "ligaw-tingin" I had those too growing up. In our generation girls who were too forward were frown upon by our elders. We had to be the "Maria Clara" stereotype.

Those are memories we should treasure. They are like a warm blanket that provide comfort, bittersweet as they may be.

Thank you, glad you like it. I try to avoid going down memory lane if possible. The trip tends to get bumpy.

@josie_ Yes it might get bumpy. But better to avoid the bumpy ones and cherish only the Rosy ones.

A lovely poem the emotions shine through. As for me I still miss my husband. This August will be one year since he passed on. However, I have the memories and I have returned to the US and I am in Daytona Beach, Florida ready to start a new life and put the past behind me.

I'm sorry for your lost. I hope fond memories of him help you through his passing. It is good to know that you are starting a new life but from time to time open that box of treasured memories. The past, the present and the future are all inextricably bond together.

Thank you. As the word "bittersweet" imply. You can't have one without the other.
