There It Was

 

There it was

Old, tarnished, nicked up, and gray

A skeleton key to my grandparents basement

Seldom used, the lock would moan

And there I was

With my skeleton, shiny and new

 

There it was

Still a bit tarnished, but gleaming with use

A skeleton key to my grandparents basement

Frequented at the feverish pace of a teen on the go

And there I was

With my skeleton gleaming with use, but becoming tarnished

 

Here I am

Old, tarnished, nicked up, and gray

With my skeleton creaking, and moaning

And there it is

A skeleton key in my mind, shiny and new

Unlocking my heart, soul, and memories of my grandparents love
