Past In My Closet

My bunnies and barbies
my teddies and mickey
all in a closet
surely are whacky ….
they giggle and roll
the laughter bursts a hole
in the past that is gone
crawling in the cubbyhole ….
they are damp in corners
my tears they treasure
Oliver my cat , showing off
the tail I stitched on her ….
it was a bad fight
between Oliver and Dodger
when Dodger pulled out her tail
you understand , it was my brother ….
Oliver and Dodger
or me and my brother
it was kick and box
but love forever …..
his set of felines
my family of dolls
all huddled together
emotions snowball ….
as time flies fast
but impressions last
shadows growing tall
in my closet with the past ….
my beautiful past
my furry past
soft and cozy
my cuddly past …..

    A beautiful poem evoking sweet memories of a sheltered childhood full of the smiles and tears of times shared with one’s sibling
