Attics are mysterious places
memories enclosed in boxes
heartache sealed forever
dreams forgotten in dust
moments you wished would last forever, lost

old yearbooks
pictures
diaries
all memories stored away

old love letters
gifts
jewelry
lovers sealed tight in a box

hopes
wishes
promises to yourself
covered in dust

everything that meant something
is treated with disregard
until one day
some one will find it

a child
cleaning or playing
will find these memories
and maybe, just maybe learn from them
