Weekly Writing Challenge: Leftovers

Old journal

The largest dresser, in the drawer on the bottom

The boxes stacked neatly on the closet floor

Places filled with items, some yellowed and musty

Leftovers, from a time long before

Every now and then we search for and peruse them

The old, worn and frayed, the tattered and torn

Memories of past times, the good and the bad ones

Some make us laugh and some make us mourn

One day we may find the strength to go through them

Purge some of the junk, yes, surely we will

How will we choose those which still hold the power?

To take us to a place where time seems to stand still

These things are left over from days of our lives

Moments that will never return

Unless we relive them by basking in the memories

Things that reveal stories that make our heart yearn

For a time or a place, or a person we long

As we study these treasures we cache

Memories kept alive that might otherwise fade

If we merely threw them out in the trash
