They jumble up my thoughts

The memories from a distant past

Like short clips of movies they run

A bright spark of color and then dark

There is no coherence no sequence

They just tumble from my thoughts

That first rose you gave me that I preserved

A candy heart to celebrate Valentine’s Day

My first car that I totaled in high school

My baby’s first stuffy that survived all those moves

The bike I rode with the neighborhood kids

All stored there, in my jumbled thoughts

But my heart trembles at that last memory

Of those days that we couldn’t step outside

Without a mask, so great was the fear

I truly want to forget the bad ones

But I would then have to give up the good ones too
