Often the best times,

Are happily forgotten,

Shelved in some corner,

Compared with yet other happier times,

While the bitter times,

Are effortlessly included into everyday folds of life,

Reminisced at every given opportunity,

For what it isn’t worth, speculated, talked, brooded upon,

Life is short, they say,

Are we happy only to remember the bitter times,

And sadly forget the happier ones?
