The Key to No Door

I have a key

It opened the kitchen door

To my parents home

No more.

I burned the house

Built in 1940

By Daddy and Grandaddy

I will miss the house

No one could enter

Falling in from disrepair

And disrespect from one

Who was the “caretaker”

To hunt deer

No more

This is the last winter

I love the deer

He did not keep

His side of the agreement

No more.

It hurts to have a key that opens no door anymore.

  1. Hi Linda. Was this a purposeful thing because the house was falling down? Or, was it an accident? The key is a symbol of those who loved you and still love you from the other side. We all have something from our past that leaves us melancholy, especially during this time of the year. More hugs coming your way. ~~~>>
