The Dresser Drawer
An ordinary room that hides a sad secret,
Only she knows where she has to keep it.
Sitting against the wall of her spare room,
In the third drawer holds yesterdays gloom.
So long ago from her past are the letters,
One would hope that time would make it better.
Not so, for the drawer has been locked from the start,
Holding the sadness that’s still locked in her heart.
Open the bedroom door, open the dresser drawer,
Open the window and let the new light in.
Fear no more tomorrow, fear no more for sorrow,
Tare up the memories that tied you to him.
Make new wishes, let light come through your door,
Tie a bright ribbon round new loves that last forever more.
Look in the mirror and see a new life like never before,
Vanished are the secrets hidden in the back of your dresser drawer.
