Tamper with my memory

Tamper with my memory
and make me remember
the past, but not as it was.

Make the dim skies
a sunny, bright day.
Surround me with love
and with care.

Take away the pain
and the loneliness.
Replace it with wonder
and joy.

For though I've been hurt
and I can't change that fact,
my memory's flawed
and that's good.

If I can imagine
a better condition,
then I can move on
and be healed.
