Memories Beyond the door

It's strange the memories that we keep
Or the dreams we dream when we sleep
Some memories are just too hard to find
  While others are  etched deep  within  our mind

 The memory of  that first kiss
fills my heart with glee
The memory of loved ones lost
Let those tears flow free

Childhood memories that bring pleasure
In the mind are safely kept
And when I wish to explore them further
I do so at my leisure

But there is a door inside the mind
Beyond which  we do not go
The most painful memories are stored there
To revisit them brings back all the fears
And so you  keep them locked away
Never to see the light of day
