All Said and Done

All Said and Done

It is said and done
What else is there?
A new broom sweeps away
feelings of two lives trying to be one
Some still caught
in the corners of the mind
Buried deep in grooves
Where time has washed over
Unable to flush them all out
Yet there they are

Every once in a while
words from a song 
will disturb the embedded memories
A fragrance in the air will stir
old familiar feelings
and you question if it is
all said and done
You know the answer
Dust particles
carry only the happy times

Miraculously the mind
has let go of the hurt
Allowing you to move on
But, oh those
never-to-be-forgotten moments
Will not leave 
They are needed to remind you
love is again possible
Because you can still feel
and your heart remains open
