Suitcase of Memories


It was a starless night
Unusual quietness
Only for the hoot of owls
Coming from the oak tree

Crack of tension,
Flood of memories washing through my head
Rage of anger:
Temper rising like a tide

I head for the door,
You would not stop me
We both let our emotions take the better
Side of our head

I try to stop seeing you
Everywhere I go
But can’t get your picture
Out of the horizon

I see you in every girl I meet
“They live, love, & laugh like you do
Like butterflies in the sun”

I hope you still remember that phrase
It’s our wedding theme, Right

Life without you is slavery
Chains, empty rooms, cold bed
No cats to mew as you would like it

Broken records, empty bottles
Long thoughts, stream of tears
And memories to keep
It’s hard to forget when your heart remembers

O Love! thou makest all things even
In earth or heaven;
Finding thy way through prison-bars
Up to the stars;
Or, true to the Almighty plan,
That out of dust created man,
