Suitcase Full

1945 RCAF Garfield  Ferris

1945 RCAF Garfield Ferris

Pictures of dad in air force uniform,
him, me, way back then,
weddings long forgotten,
daughters dressed by another mother.

Lives I recall,
times I forget,
wishes that were fishes,
dreams that never lived.

My whole life
in one suitcase
that can’t possibly hold
any of it.
