Private Memories

No one really knows you

It is one of life’s great joys

No matter how they love you

They’ll never really know

What it is you think about

When you sit alone

What it is that excites you

Deep inside your mind

Secret thoughts of peacefulness

Things to make you grimace

Things that make you smile

Memories of embarrassment

Of things and events past

Things you’ll keep to yourself

Private until the very last
