People walk in and out,
Leaving greetings as they walk by.
And with those greetings they leave a memory,
Which can't be easily forgotten.
As they walk by,
They do not realise the effect they cause,
Nor do they think of the consequence
Which can happen later in life,
Just with that one simple greeting.
Sometimes, it can be more,
Not just a greeting but a lengthy conversation,
Or maybe even a relationship
Leaving a more vivid memory.
Now, these memories,
Sometimes we wish to forget them
And at others we adore to go over them,
We can never really decide.
The thought of no memory
Causes a shiver down our spines,
Memories are important in one way or another
They help us to remember and relish life.
So when you wish to forget,
Think about the importance of the memory,
It may help you later on in life.
