I used to cling to terrible memories,
ones that bring me despair and
ones that make me cringe to this day.
But the Lord renewed my mind, for that
I am grateful for now I cling
to the memories that I don’t want to forget.
The nice words people have said to me
that uplifted my spirit in more ways than one,
the achievements I’ve made when I didn’t see any way
they would happen,
the beautiful friendships I’ve made,
the experiences that made me stronger and wiser.
These are the memories I love
and will never, ever let go of.
These are the ones that keep my joy flowing
and reassure me there are more amazing
memories to come.
