I wish we could put our memories
inside a drawer - distanced from our heart
because then I'd never remember
the pain of us being apart

I could walk past the drawer
and never open it
slip beneath the covers
and imagine

Pretend that you're still here
to give me comfort
to dream
that you still want to love me

To talk over my fears
knowing you'd love me anyway
to use your shoulder
as a haven for my tears

Instead I joke and laugh
wishing you could see inside
the me that's frightened
sleep lady sleep



 Yesterday is but today's memory and tomorrow is today's dream...

This is really beautiful, Rainbow.

 To the world you might be just one person but to one person you might just be the world.

I can relate to this...love lost.  Sad yet beautiful.  Well done.

RainbowGirl -
My thoughts are with you, my friend.
This piece is too sad a refrain for your loving heart to sing.

Could feel the loneliness and sadness. Well written. Wish we could put them in a drawer sometimes. But I wonder how many times we would wander by that drawer and try to refrain from opening it?

Love your graphic, it's adorable!

RainbowGirl such sad, but beautiful words. I echo what WhtDove said, and I really wish we could place them in a drawer.  ((((Hugs)))))

Some memories are best when shoved to the back of that drawer, RG. But keep some towards the front as we are shaped by our past. (Is that YOU in that glass?)

Thank you all...they may have seemed sad thoughts but in many ways I count myself lucky...maybe some, or even all, will know what I mean by that...

HUGS and thank you, you really are such generous people and such big hearts!

 Yesterday is but today's memory and tomorrow is today's dream...
