Secrets of the War
by Sue Cooper
A careless whisper, time stands still for me as age old secrets come to life
This fading book, with fragmented truths, spill history, the slate wiped clean
Photos, tarnished with age, tumble into my reality and there he stands, uniformed, but I recognize the truth. Familiarity, like rain, sweeps across my soul, the secret locked behind dusty corners. My father, duty bound, a forbidden love, who left more than the essence of himself, gone, without a trace, yet here I am to carry on the journey. And I will.
