42 years reduced to a few boxes

Three children

Two marriages

Too many memories to count



In dusty basements

Do you mourn the loss of things

Or the passing of time

Memories behind the cobwebs of denial


Surrounding old with new

Praying nothing happens

Just a few items

Physical proof of a life lived

Special only to the one who holds on

Carried from place to place

A security blanket of hope

Pieces of an old story

Patched into a new one

Anticipation of a brighter tale
