Poem: "In this drawer" by Steven Michael Pape

In this drawer
©® Steven Michael Pape, 2022

In this drawer
Faces peer put
Reviving memories
Before the last light.

On this cardboard
Where memories belong
Be it a favourite poem
Or a well known song.

These memories remain
Deep in our hearts
As our dearly beloved
Bring light to dark.

And we've sat and held
This two-page sheet
Tried to hide the sadness

And relived the good times
Conversations we've shared
The hugs and the kisses
The way which they cared.

And as the music plays out
For their final lament
All of us are remember
This love that they sent.
