The Past - Poem by L. K. Thayer

the past
is always behind us
one step

one step forward
two steps back

it follows us, waiting in the wings
it sleeps next to us in bed
it greets us in the morning

sometimes with regret
sometimes with longing
and melancholy
sometimes with beaming rays
of remembrance

it’s always there

for us

to recollect

and call collect
