We’ve got some major cleaning up to do.
I found my old faceted Amethyst pendant from long ago.
I’ve been looking for it everywhere.
Reminds me of that one time in first year Uni.
When I lost the silver four leaf clover bracelet my father had given me.
I went insane looking for it.
Our building had thirteen floors.
I don’t know how much it had cost.
But I put up flyers offering a $500 reward for it.
When I thought all hope was lost,
I found it in my sock drawer a month later.
You can’t lose what is truly yours.
I bumped into my very first manager a couple of days ago.
We recognized each other and caught up briefly.
I was struck by the beauty she was able to retain.
After eleven years.
She must be in her fifties now.
To pursue beauty and discard life/longevity.
This has been my creed forever.
But now I realize I can have both.
Because Father Time also dotes on me.
