Lifetime Treasures


Life is filled with this and that

Trinkets that we treasure

Little bits of memories

Stored within

A cherished doll,

A favorite ball

Or other childhood pleasure.

As we age and look around

Wondering how to measure

I wonder if the this and that

Stored inside

A cedar chest

Even if it is our best

Will still bring us such pleasure?

Material things are best

When they bring us joy or laughter

So if I discarded it

Sometime past

Without a question asked

I will not mourn it after.
