Packing Memories

All we take
with us
is memories 

I've carefully wrapped
in tissue 

The ones
filled with light
are the most

The dark ones
make good
packing material

  1. Brilliantly honest and true, My Dear! But we can’t really get rid of the ones we want without being willing to sacrifice a little piece of who we are, can we????


    1. Thanks Chuck, and I Agree! Not to get rid of those “dark” memories, but to make them useful. I guess that’s what I was trying for here. When we leave this world, what do we take with us? Memories, right? Let’s make them worthwhile! Thank you for your kind words my Friend and for your visit! ❤
