Those moments that stay with you all through your life
The ones that keep you up well into the night
The good, the bad, the ugly, the true
The long, the short, the old, the new
These memories hold meaning that runs so deep
The only challenge is: how many can you keep?
I collect memories, not stamps or marbles or shoes
No gadgets or gizmos or thingamabobs will do
No one can take them, they will never be ruined
They seem to be better than whatever you’re doing
You’ll never be out, they’re in constant supply
You’re making some right now you don’t even need to try
Many will tell you not to dwell in the past
And Live in the moment, it may be your last
But what happens when you forget what you’ve done and become
You forget who you are and where you came from
