A Memory

So long since she saw the house, and played inside
A jungle of rooms and a staircase that led to the clouds
Boxes now lie scattered about
That kept clues to a past life

Found a picture of a house
In the garden a child was playing
Bathed in sun and full of life
A memory

She grew away from this
She became someone else
Left to find something that was not lost
Then she saw her box

A battered treasure chest she looked deep inside
Paintings of a face in a stream
Beneath calm waters, deep waters indeed
A memory

The fear and wonder of walking through the wood
in a lucid dream
Like an autumn leaf held in a fist
As seen through a child’s eyes

Found a picture of a house
The walls dry and cracked
Bathed in sun but without life
A memory
