What Memories, Lazarus? - Poem by elysabeth faslund

From the Light
To the fire...
From the fire
To the Light...
What did you
Bring back to
With loved ones,

What memories,
And what bonds
Did you break
To re-enter
What memories
Did you never,
Ever speak
Can you tell us?
Should you
Tell us?

    i read a poem similar to this once, about Lazarus, his BO, and all the problems his family envisioned after having refurnished his room.
    This one asks a lot of interesting questions, and you know how i love questions, don't you?
