Memories sneak up on us like a thief in the night, 
robbing us of our peace of mind.
Music has the ability to quicken our pulse –
yearning for a lost lover. 
Fragrances trigger an involuntary response, 
constricting our hearts. 
The taste of a loved one can never be forgotten, 
like the first cup of coffee that quenches our thirst.
The texture of the object of our love – 
an ache felt deep within our very souls.
The forces that drive the tides cannot be described – 
a look from a stranger triggers recognition.
Hold the memories lightly in the palm of your hand. 
Be selective who you choose to create memories with.

    Your poem conveys such veracity Suzette. My daughter is dealing with this kind of longing pain right now. Your last line is the best advice you could give! This is a real gem! 7 ; )
