Standing in the attic
And looking all around.
Things are hanging on the wall.
While some are scattered on the ground.

In the corner is the christmas train,
Still sitting upon the track.
While memories of long ago,
Warm the heart, as they come flooding back.

And leaning up against the wall,
I see an old baby chair.
It's been almost twenty years
Since the day we put it there.

Over there are the hippie and the disco clothes.
They are tucked inside the trunk.
To some they are a treasure,
But to others they are junk.

Each object in this room
Has a special place for me.
These old relics that you see here
Are just precious memories.

And maybe sometime later your children they may find,
Your poems and your sayings with string you did bind.

What a true and awesome treasure that will come to be,
When they learn the woman who lived inside the woman inside of thee

You are very lucky to have the memories left in your attic.  For most of us we have had to move so many times, that the memories and the treasures are left far behind.
