Mementos

Our lives may end like this, too

Carted away by 1800JunkToGo
Workmen picking up the detritus

Things we’ve kept far too long

Well that I did, you would
Have thrown them all away
In time’s past

We could have kept the memories
Without the stuff

You would have thought
Unbothered by sentiment no longer
Remembered, or maybe

Remembered just enough to make us smile
