Handmade toys, long forgotten
Faded photos, tarnished frames
Abandoned? Why, I wonder?
Someone’s past memory.
Pocket watches, old glass faces
Dusty with age and time
Despite faltering, life went on?
Someone’s timeless memory.
Purple velvet lined jewelry box
Empty now, but for stale air
Hopes and dreams once lay inside?
Someone’s cherished memory.
Dried flowers, sad and alone
Once were brilliant, now long dulled
Were they picked from the garden below?
Someone’s perfumed memory.
Peeling, cracked paint upon the walls
Rooms decaying, long ignored
Love once rebounded thru the halls?
Someone’s long forgotten memory.
