all is right where she left it



left behind
put out of mind
all that care put into
selecting
wrapping
making sure not to forget
forgotten
time and empty hands triggered a memory
a rushing back
a reunion, relief
and for a brief moment
belief
that the world is good.

  1. Oh I really like this, it sums up so many of my days suffering as I do with momnesia on a permanent basis 🙂 There is always that rush of relief and you describe it beautifully.

  2. Relief and reunion, relief in reunion…you capture the feeling and posit it well. "and for a brief momentbeliefthat the world is good."Could be taken darkly though–is it really? Or do we just deceive ourselves? The questions daily greeting us…Wonderful One Shot.
