OPENING THE DOOR~by Heather Burns


 

 

OPENING THE DOOR

Opening
the door
returning
to
yesterday

Peeking
inside
a thousand
thoughts
run the
corridors
of my
mind

All our
treasures
remain
in tact

Just as
we left
them
so long
ago

Our tree
house
neat
and tidy

Dolls
dressed
in their
finest
waiting
for our
return

It is
not the
same now
someone
is
missing

Yesterday
cannot be
recaptured
as it
once was

I quietly
close
the door
turn away

walking
into
the
future

leaving
them
undisturbed.
