Something More Than This

Rhonda Strickland

Sun City, United States

Artist's Description

There are those things like days long forgotten.
Memories that have been thrown out
like fruit gone rotten.
So many yesterdays
hidden deep inside
Filed away in the dark
so that they might hide.

Yet, just a thought, one flashing instant
Something seen or heard unfolds.
That memory once thought long gone
Shows it does still have it’s hold.

Sighing inwardly, it catches the breath
The thoughts are carried away.
To that moment in the minds eye,
To the memory of that day.

I think to tell them to not return
because the pain is there
Would not be any pleasure,
I think it would be unfair.

Without those thoughts so painful,
then good ones in our life
Could not be savored, appreciated,
without those moments of strife.

I continue to hope that we will survive
The fear, the love, the pain, the kiss.
Each day will pass and I will ask
Is there something more than this?
