Putting Me Together — Linda Imbler

People I’ve known,
their faces remembered
only in deepest dreams,
a highway of human automobiles
speeding through my mind


Emotional yo-yos of memories
bounce like balls on a court.
Bringing smiles or tears,
but all have taught me something


The jigsaw puzzle of my life,
pieces falling into place,
and as the last part snaps in,
I will see the complete me,
ready to recall each moment
as something which helped me build.
