i don't throw

things away.

the meaningful,

the meaningless,

everything is somewhere.

in my house.

in my garage.

tucked away in

places i don't remember,

to be found at

times i don't

expect to find them.

i found a memory

a few weeks ago.

it was nothing, really.

just something i held

on to just

in case...

i can't believe i

kept it

in the first place,

but at the time

it seemed so necessary.

i thought,

or maybe it's better

to say i had a

feeling, that

it may be the last

time we

would see one another.

it wasn't.

we had a couple

of years before that

final moment.


when i found it

i knew what it

was and i knew what

it meant at the

time i saved it.

i held it in

my hand, surprised

at the kind of

emotions a little

piece of plastic could elicit,

especially two and

a half years

after shit like this

lost all meaning.

  1. Isn't amazing how things that seem so insignificant can bring back memories that make us cry or laugh. For me it has been finding lists that my husband wrote- his writing was unique to him and it sometimes makes me sad to see it, because it is a reminder of the time he was here with me. Other times it reminds me how much he was a kid and made the everyday an adventure, which makes me smile to remember those times.
