You Found Things – Written Wednesday 17th September 2008 (Aged 33)

You Found Things

you found things
which i thought were lost
things hidden in boxes
under the stairs or up in the loft
you found the stirrups
for this old nag
you unpacked my stress
and the emotional bags
you found things
that i had owned once
but then they got moved
you added reassurance to decisions
and then helped me choose
you found things
which i feared were dead
the cornfields of dreams
that rustle in my head
the sharpening of pencils
as they are let loose with their lead
you found things
