Read Poem: LOST HOPE CHEST, by Philip Adams

As I walked to school one day the rain fell from the sky
So I ran into a vacant home so my clothes could dry

The only thing inside was a time stained wedding dress
Inside a dusty closet with an old wooden chest

It had been there for years time had not moved
a dream filled hope chest that never came true

It only took a minute to break a fragile lock
and open all the things someone wanted lost

It was full of old memories and personal effects
The unfinished dreams inside a LOST HOPE CHEST

I never made it to school that day but I sure learned a lot
From a vacant old home time had forgot

I still see the pictures and the letter that I found
I took nothing with me but some things you can’t put down

Just some old memories and personal affects
The unfinished dreams inside a LOST HOPE CHEST
