Backward Gazing

Regina Puckett



Every so often the past will come around to visit

And we’ll sit and laugh as we remember back to it

Times look so much purer and sweeter from afar

Where each moment can be rearranged as a memoir

And with each retelling the past becomes even more amazing

As we sit on the front porch and do our inward-backward gazing

We can now laugh about those once shed crocodile tears

Because sometimes all it takes to make things better are years
