Dear Memory...

PAD Challenge day 13:For today’s prompt, write a memory poem.

I keep you around for somehow I have found
In the relinquishing of Todays
Though you cannot return there is so much to learn
From your tried and tested ways

Sometimes we slow-dance and sometimes your romance
Is a teardrop instead of a kiss
But I keep you because everything that once was
Reminds me to cherish what is

Your fleet-footed way soon becomes yesterday
Both darling and devil thou art
But I keep you near in a smile, in a tear
To fine-tune the chords of my heart
