Just a Memory

Black and white

photograph in a frame.

Mind works hard

to remember your name.

Years have flown

since you’ve seen her last,

now she is

just a memory from your past.


in a box under the bed,

you open it up

wondering how many are dead.

Life’s journey

has not been kind to you

with all the trouble

it has put you through.

Now you have

arrived at your destination

armed with

the knowledge of your limitations.
