Have you forgotten

Have you forgotten?
Or do you not care?
Has someone or something
Taken it away somewhere?

I know you once had it
I saw it...I did.
Your bright smile
So wonderful to hear.

We just have this one life
Of this I am told.
So please let me help you
Find what you have lost.

Forget about past hurts,
It does no one good.
Brooding and weeping
About things we can't change.

Wake up and feel
Marvel at little things
Taste the jam on your bread
But most of all be happy
Because you're not dead.

    Beutiful write Randall . I'm really glad I read your poetry today because I was feeling downcast. I feel much better now. Thanks. Just one tiny correction in your poem my friend. In the last line, please replace "your" with you're". Beautiful write. Best wishes to you, Taha

    This is such a joyful, uplifting write, Randall! My aunt lived her life with a big smile and always had a grand time. Most of us succumb to the blues from time to time, but as you say, it's a waste of time to brood "about things we can't change." :) Love, Carolyn
