Poem for Xmass: Little by little, piece by piece

Little by little, piece by piece

We leave the past behind

All the items we once owned

Now are only in our mind

The dearest of these we will keep

If fate will be that kind

The rest fade bit by bit

To that we are resigned

Until, one fateful day

We wake up to find

That in some way, somehow, somewhere

The future has left us behind
