Poetry – I Found You Again Today

I found you again today

What’s it been, thirty years?

You still look great, same great

Smile, same clear blue eyes,

You haven’t aged at all,

You were with your family

Just like I left you, lying

There, inside that wooden box,

The big one in the basement,

I was cleaning up a bit, good

Thing to do every thirty

Years or so, has it been that

Long? Seems like just yesterday

When I said goodbye, surrounding

You with mothballs, you were

Wearing your favorite shirt, blue

Like your eyes, your wife so lovely

And perfect in her dress, and

The twins, what were their names?

No matter, we had fun, all those

Summer days and nights, there

On the floor of my bedroom,

Oh, look at the spot, there on her

Dress, it was red, wasn’t it, and

Now it’s faded rusty pink,

But you, you still have that look

On your face, you were so surprised,

Yes, you never thought I’d do it,

You thought you had a good thing

That we were forever, the five

Of us, but I grew up and got

Wise and so, you all went away,

Packed inside this wooden box

Surrounded by mothballs in

The corner of my basement.
