As per my usual Friday offering, I am writing for the Free Write Friday prompt from Kellie. To read more, please visit her wonderful blog at:
Walking through the words lost in thought
Only to stumble upon a box buried there
With the signs of days long ago upon it
I studied it, finally opening with care.
I had to sit and study the memories within
For I could see the lifetime captured inside
The brittle photos, notes, even a locket
All nestled in this box, buried to hide.
Was I forsaking the sacred bonds of others
I treated the contents with deserved respect
For after only a few moments inside this trove
I knew it wasn’t here due to anyones neglect.
The shared love and memories of two hearts
I could see that there was no love they lack
But years had passed since this was buried here
So with a sigh and a smile, I buried it back.
