Incandescent visions
Of a dark and distant past
Slowly fading memories
Destined not to last
Time erodes the images
We keep in our minds eye
It takes a vivid imagination
And a strong will not to cry

Sometimes it is very painful to look back. Thankfully the "dark" memories do fade away.

May your todays provide pleasant past memories for your future!

I agree for the most part but a lot depends on the memory.  Our memory is a monster.  It chooses what to remember not us.
