The Present needed the Past

The door heaved open

exposing the dark, dusty gloom of the past.

Walking into, and resting in each room

the light began to pour in

from all the love she feels in the present.

The past and the present began

to live together, sometimes contentious

but with a newly learned respect.

Intuitively, she knew her present

needed her past, so she could

learn, change and grow.
