and Forsaken Memories"
Priceless moments lay concealed, beneath the dusty stairs of my life.
A congested pathway with traffic, a hastened pace that blinds.
Missed memories now lost, time passes by.
Too busy to notice, what's forgotten will die.
Distracted by mundane, and earthly cares.
The air down the hall, full of despair.
Steps leading upward, and downward too.
Less pertinent, less valued, a lie is pursued.
Leading me nowhere, feeling empty and void.
A still small voice says, "Stop and deploy!"
Glancing downward I see, in the corner of the room.
A tiny sparkle of hope, there hidden not assumed.
I stop! I stare! A gasp, a slow sigh!
A shining witness right there, by my feet, it lie!
Removing it gently, with thoughtful care.
I see the miracle, I neglected to share.
Softly caressing, this precious timepiece.
I lay back slowly, to reflect in peace.
The heirloom abandoned, now rescued by light.
Refreshed my soul, and renewed my sight!
My steps are more thoughtful, my stride more aware.
Time travels slower, as I guard my affairs.
My life is now brighter! My vision more clear!
I savor the moment! Each memory more dear!
