Rummaging my dreams from a treasure chest
I hug Snoopy and Troll dolls one last time,
They knew my little secret childhood crime 
So I tagged their backs with hums, sublime
And no one understood  my tight unrest. 

Opening a box, keepsakes fell somehow
Velvet frocks  saw my look, a tender pain,
And more for sale; my heart started to rain
Oh memoirs I had to let go…again, 
As teapot brewed, feeling alright for now.

A classic watch peeped like a dangling star
It’s glass frame broken, yet alive and warm, 
Dad slow-dancing me in the blue rainstorm
I saved this above all, without doubt or norm 
Cherishing his touch so near, though skies afar.

    Nette, I was pulled into your memory, your reluctance like we all have to let go lest we become burdened by our own past yet---there are some things we must always keep.
