The Red Duvet

Removed from Summer storage, the red duvet reminds me

Of misty, rainy weekend mornings encapsulated in a warm, cozy embrace

Moments in time captured forever in memories

Not to be erased or washed away, no matter how bittersweet they may be

While the red duvet may stave off the upcoming Winter chill

It also reminds of the empty spaces left behind

Both laughter and tears are held inside of this fabric

I wrap myself in its warmth allowing these emotions to course through me

Someday…just maybe, the empty spaces will be no more
