lost and found
Lost NOT found


I had a poem written as I drove my car
I kept it in my mind
It was one of the best I think
about lost and find
But now
it is not in my mind
I can not remember where to look
not at all
totally lost in my mind
at this time
and
impossible to type or start..

oh...wait...maybe? Look in my heart

I keep some things
I do not need
I need some things
I do not keep
I store some things
best forgotten
I forget some things
I think I need
But..
I have found
I only need the part
of
lost things
I have kept
in
my heart

find what you lost in your hand or heart or your mind

  2. Oh, I know what you mean! Sometimes I write things in my head and think I will always remember them, and it really irritates me when I sit down to write and can't remember my brilliant words. And I do think it is true that you only need a part of the lost things you keep in your heart; sometimes part is enough to fill that heart...with love.

  3. I enjoyed your poem, Rae! Losing a poem is not uncommon sadly. Somehow I always think I will remember what I have in mind.
    As for the things I really need, I believe they are in my heart too.

  4. Your poem made me smile - every line so true. Very annoying when that perfect poem is lost.
