Boxes packed

Boxes packed, sitting
in a stack on the floor,
near the door, flaps
folded and tucked, waiting
for the last movement.
Pictures taken down, walls
empty yet bearing marks
of what had been before,
windows of meaning, closed,
a life worked and lived,
a life retired, retiring.
And it, too, is good.
