"Memories of things that never happened
These are always the hardest to forget.
All the old friends and the loved ones
These are the people you haven't even met."
It's almost as good as Willy Wonka's "Pure Imagination":
"There is no place I know
to compare with pure imagination
Living there you'll be free
if you truly wish to be"
I think queenofstripes, at least, can appreciate the levels of potential meaning in that last line.
