(thanks Mike)

The hour is late,
I should be sleeping
instead I sit here
quietly weeping
crying for a man
I never knew
yet remembered with
a de ja vu
It happened quite by chance
this fate provoked
happenstance……
walking through an antique store
a place I’d been to
many times before
I started with my favorites
milk jars of glass
then I found
old photographs
thumbing through
I saw his face
lean, elegant
so full of grace
I couldn’t believe
my own mind
when the ‘memories’
I did find
I knew his name
I knew his life,
you see
before,
I was his wife
How could I know?
How could this be?
it’s just a picture
looking back at me…….
The shop owner asked,
“Have you seen a ghost?
He lived here,
down by the coast.”
I told her things
I couldn’t know
relayed stories
of long ago
I saw it then, in her eyes
it was the truth
No guesses
No lies

“We must somehow
be related,
us meeting
somehow fated,
for that man  
you clearly know
was my great grandfather,
Mitchell Joe”
She seemed confused
when I tired to explain
the memories of another lifetime
resurfacing again....
she didn't understand
so I just let it be
took the picture,
home with me

~now the picture is hung
upon my wall
and tonight I cry
for a man I recall

Spooky. And just right for Halloween. It put me in the spirit.

Thanks,

Susan,
I hate fear. But this one I like.

If tears could build a stairway and memories a lane, I'd walk right up to heaven and bring you home again.

Ooo, I love the twist of this. And that she knows of her past as well as this. Perhaps this is only the beginning lock to more keys?

Awesome, Susan!
