A simple concept really,
but in reality it is hard as a rock,
but not rock solid.

It takes time
while it takes time away
and makes us cherish memories
that happened yesterday and
linger long into tomorrow and
the next day.

Day by day until those memories we created
Start to fade away.
As we try to hold on
we find what's holding us back is ourselves.

Once we get out of our own way,
the way to clarity becomes clear
and we relinquish our deepest fear
by keeping our memories near
to our hearts.

Because no matter how far apart you may feel
know that what you feel is real.
Your yesterday shapes your today
and today tomorrow.
So get rid of your sorrow
and smile...if only for a while.
