March 29, 2010 - The Gift


The Gift

Wrapped in ribbons tied in bows
My love I have for you
A pretty package to unwrap
Your heart I give it to

Hold it gently in your hands
Recall its fragility
No harm will come if you shake it
But do it lovingly

Place it gently to your ear
Listen to what's inside
This gift I give you makes no sound
But it cannot hide

Now if you truly wish to know
How it will look and feel
You must open it and look inside
And know that it is real
