Bittersweet Memories

Bittersweet Memories

Bittersweet memories
play in my mind
saddening my heart
of my love lost.

Bittersweet memories
smile at me softly
reminding me
what was taken from me.

Bittersweet memories
of the tender pleasures
that were denied me
why hast thou forsaken me?

Bittersweet memories
of my sacred blessed angel
who has flown from me
I will forever remember thee.
