As they say. . .

A company recently contacted me
about my long-standing account;
We’re so sorry, Tammy!
Our mainframe crashed
and we've lost your history. . .

'We've lost your history. . .'

I thought about that
for a moment, but wasn't angry
Maybe some things need to be lost:
Grief. Bad choices. A virus.

Imagine the chance for a reset—
to lose all that history at once

Replace it
with what brings happiness:
Family. Friends. Health.
Animals. Two jobs I really love;
though I feel one is a gift

A garden. Plants. Soil. Poetry.
Things that speak to my soul
help me process human aspects
of uncertainty and doubt

These are what we should keep
in the annals of our life

The rest, as they say, is history
best forgotten;
or, perhaps just lost
