me.323open the box marked christmas past with care
for childhood joys and missing friends you’ll find
with memories the lost-forever kind
that lie waiting to trip you up beware
or reconcile yourself to linger there
amidst unsorted photos of the mind
and laughter packed in odd-shaped boxes lined
with longing or regret for you can’t stare
them down reliably sometimes they just
wash over whatever happiness you
have since accrued there’s no way to predict
so pause until tears pass away then trust
tomorrow to sweep you beyond conflict
toward dreams love has power to renew
