Journey Forwards, Backwards

Tenderly carrying precious bundle
Carving memory keepsakes

Reliving moments extracted
Out of own memory’s purse

Another tall loving chest
Cozy comfort of being held

Past present crisscross, a train
Arrives whistling, as one departs

Morning hours do a quick getaway
Afternoon hours purchase headway

Life zigzags forwards, backwards
Forward move leaving footprints backwards
