Viewpoint

Night sparkle swing

Like fireflies dancing on the silken night,
My memories sparkle in the jar of time.
I could dwell on ones that make me cry,
But I shoo those dark moths out of sight.
I shift my view to laughs and smiles,
And the best of those who have passed me by.
You prefer to revisit pain and strife,
But I crave glitter in this short, fast life.
