Year of Poetry Day 280 – They Always Will Even If I Don’t

Year of Poetry Day 280 – They Always Will Even If I Don’t

I always wondered why certain memories
come back to haunt us
at inopportune times.
Is it because we are needing to learn a lesson?
Is it because the other person we are thinking of
is hurting and needs someone thinking
and praying for them?
Is it because they are thinking of us
and we are feeling their energy again?
Everyone I’ve come to know—
I’ve never been able to shake their energy,
I’ve never been able to shake their essence
as they’ve become a part of me.
And whether I like it or not,
Among all these painful memories,
I’m glad I don’t discard things so easily
as I hold onto people and their souls
because everyone who has been in my life
was there for a reason,
And they always will matter to me
even if I don’t to them anymore.
