“Antique Tears”

it’s amazing
to look at your past
through Love
having forgiven all
having let go of pain

for years
steering clear of anything
that might trigger a memory
of the past
of childhood
of pain

but not today

spending time in an antique shop
seeing everything new
of old
remembering those who loved
as they could

tears in my reflection of the glass

metal lunchboxes
a thermus

remembering the good
as a child
never thinking
of anything bad

tempted to regret
all the years wasted
in unforgiveness
but not agreeing
because there’s so much time

never be afraid
to look at your past
through Love
