Collector's Item


For some they keep it a collection
I kept mine as my recollection
They are holding a priceless item
I’m holding my loved ones’ memories as my gem

They traveled to far-flung places to buy the famous one
I went to upstairs’ attic to revive the beauty that was gone
Of my belongings where special moments keep holding
In all walks of my life become a daily bonding

For someone kept the painting of Monalisa
I have my family’s portrait as my memorabilia
For someone held the Beatles’ mono box set
I have my son’s first recorded recital of his alphabet

They’ve got the famous people’s autograph
I’m  always reading my wife’s letter resting on my lap
It bears the years that would turn more invaluable
What I’ve got are moments still alive and tangible

They’re interested for it is rare, beautiful, and famous
I am for them for it is normal, affectionate and joyous
It will bring them to pedestal of society
I will be released from my anxiety

Time is holding their preciousness
Special moments keep us in oneness
By time and craftsmanship are their limitations
Inspiring memories and love, in time will grow a forever connection
