From The Grave

~ There was a box kept upon a shelf An old and tattered pretty box Inside were all my precious memories All my happiness, my sorrows and tears Kept safe from my crumbling mind The lid always closed and locked And when I wanted to remember again My childhood, youth and decay Slowly, I opened the worn lid With gnarled hands, I held my life Remembering all the chapters All the love, hardship and sorrows But most I treasured happiness And how I loved this life Lived ~ June 28, 2013 Free Verse
