Poetry: Good Times





Photo source: Pixabay







Remember the good times
They'll serve you well
When life is hard
As tough as hell



Hot summer nights
Lying in bed
His strong shoulders
Resting my head



Laughing and loving
Wasting our days
Entombed in our room
Set in our ways



You doing your thing
Me doing mine
Coming together
For beer and wine



Life carries on
Memories remain
Don't let bad times
Leave their stain

remembering the good times is a good thing unless you linger in the past instead of loving the present.

Lori said...

Remember the good but also live in the moment. That even the small little things are good too. You doing your thing and me doing mine just spending time.

These two lines say it all for me. One should not dwell in the past but, move forward and let good times bring joy.

Don't let bad times
Leave their stain

It is truly so important that we choose what we focus on. Our lives and our outlooks become what we give our attention to.

Yup--you have to have the good times no matter what --they do cushion the bad times--

Old Egg said...

You've got it right and it would be great to think others would follow your path but there are so many different tracks that are attractive so enjoy your life whilst others think they are enjoying theirs.

Rosemary Nissen-Wade said...

Having a kindred spirit to share the good times with is a great blessing!
