As I was rummaging through
A heap of frozen moments,
I found a slice of time
Wrapped in silk,
With pink ribbons and glittering stars.
It sat perched on the edge of my memories.
And drew it close to my heart.
It was light
And soon I knew why.
It had some frothy laughter within
With the softness of a mother’s love.
There were patterns scribbled
In pinks and blues
On velvet dreams and flaky walls.
There were hugs and kisses
And hopes and prayers.
There was everything that I longer had.
Is that why
My heart has never felt light
Ever since I left those moments behind?
