Her Present Needed Her 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.

As a new season begins, she holds hands with her past, lives in the present, and rests.
