That's a really creative and optimistic way of looking at memories. Sometimes when memories linger, they tend not to contrast with other ones so much as just saturating the concurrent ones being made at present. A thorn in the side or an incling of comfort...when they linger, there's no telling what they can do.
Overall I think you did a good job of portraying how one looks back at times, for the sake of looking forward. Good job.

good idea...but the execution needs some work, especially the last lines. try describing "good" (it's such a banal adjective and you use it twice in two lines). also "filling and full" - nice idea but it doesn't quite work. there's something wrong with the flow... it seems to end too abruptly (leaving the reader off balance where i think you're looking for balance) also the question and answer opening seems off. I think it would be a stronger poem if you started "a memory blows with the wind." it's more active than the passive question and immediately draws the reader in.
