A SERIES STILL REMAINS

When all becomes what was
and you're damaged by defeat,
the battle you waged daily
engulfs a lover's grief

Memories will not flourish
but a series still remains,
where aches of recent history
mute as sorrow wanes

Though albums
have less pictures
and frames have been replaced,
their essence is a specter
haunting frequent
in this space

Artifacts are archived
in a warehouse
locked away,
except for all the relics
you're reminded of
each day

Months of renovation
build wounds into resolve,
as forgiveness
comes in focus
to face problems
still unsolved

And after lingering drama
finds its way to peace,
you’ll cherish
each new morning
without demons to appease
