Every 10 years since I was 18 I have written a letter to myselfto be opened 10years later. Next year will be third one I open and the fourth I write. Having moved recently I came across the letters in my memory box and in part it prompted this piece.

Memory Box


Has it been ten years since I last wrote you?

Should I start to tell what Iíve been up to?

Sifting back through thoughts and dreams, hopes and schemes

What Iíve done, where Iíve been, repeating themes


Open up the memory box, scan back

Who am I now?

Am I yet still on track?

Did I ever once put my life on hold?

Or moving forward Ė take it on so bold!


Memoryís Destiny lies in the past

Founding stone of who I am; meant to last.

They serve me well; my joy, tears and laughter

Moving on to write another chapter


Should I shed a tear about where Iíve been

The loves I lost, people, places I have seen

Donít fear that I am lost along the way

The past informs the path Iíll take today
