About the Poem

Some people have a place for all the wonderful memories they hold over the years. Sometimes it's nice to look back, but in the past you can't stay

A Few Visitor Comments

I like the way the poems makes me feel reminiscent.
Your poem has touched me in a very special way. I was at a very low point in my life where i wished that i could just reverse time, and not deal with the present. But your poem helped me, thankyou.
this poem is great because it hits all the facts of life

The Old Chest

I open the old chest
And what do I see
All of the things
That are special to me

Poems and stories
Pictures and such
All of the things
That mean so much

Things that remind me
Of good times and bad
Things that remind me
Of old friends I once had

Sometimes I wish
I could put my life in rewind
But I know I have to close the old chest
And leave the past behind
