Spring Cleaning


I thought I lost your love.
When I noticed it was gone,
I looked everywhere, but
Couldn’t find it.

Only now I realize it was
Never lost at all, just
Set aside. Packed away
In the last box you sealed

Before leaving, filled with
Memories you discarded,
Boxed and left for me
To find in my own time,

To find when I dared open
Locked doors to empty rooms.
One box left behind for me, to
Prove I didn’t lose your love.

You set it aside, packed it away
With such care. Your love for
Me. Outgrown, unwanted, but
Left for me to find again

And remember that part of you
Was always mine, to keep
Or to discard. Your love for me,
Not lost, but left behind.
