Sleepers

Sleepers

Here we are, holding
These precious jewels
Of memory up

To each other once more,
Finding what one remembers
The other wanted to forget.

Finding that we did not,
After all, share a life.
But had two lives

That ran parallel together
Like railroad tracks.
These memories

– like the sleepers –
What held us together
Also keeping us apart.
