Baggage

 

By Evelyn Colbath

Now that I'm home, bathed, settled and fed,
all nicely tucked in my warm new bed.
I'd like to open my baggage lest I forget
there is so much to carry - So much to regret.

Hmm ... Yes there it is, right on the top.
Let's unpack Loneliness, Heartache and Loss;

And there by my leash hides Fear and Shame.
As I look on these things I tried so hard to leave -

I still have to unpack my baggage called Pain.

I loved them, the others, the ones who left me;
But I wasn't good enough - for they didn't want me.
Will you add to my baggage? Will you help me unpack?
Or will you just look at my things -And take me right back?

Do you have the time to help me unpack?
To put away my baggage, to never repack?
I pray that you do - I'm so tired you see,
But I do come with baggage - Will YOU still want ME?
