taken back

She had not looked at in so long
Forgotten it was even there
It kept it's place in the drawer
Until the moment she needed it

She had forgotten how many memories it held
She never realized how quickly it would take her back
She did not understand it's power
But it held so much for her

Even just the site of it made her remember
It fit so perfectly in her hand as it had before
It was a passage way through time now
When before it connected her to the world

She sat with it for awhile
Reliving some of the moments
Smiling at the good ones
She was grateful for being linked back

To another time
Another place
To a part of her
That will always live within her

Funny how a little object, or a song, or a smell can transport us so quickly back to another day, another year, another lifetime....

This reminds me when I found my child's baby gown, time has flown by.
