.4. Put Safely Away


Where has my wife put the car keys
I left at the side of my bed
She whisked them away in my sleeping
To put away safely she said

Stored away safely from burglars
Should one maybe call in the night
Hidden where no one could find them
Covered up well out of sight

She’s never been one for remembering
Things seem to slip right from her mind
Then turn up a year or two later
In places that no one could find

Time slips by fast in an like an instant
The summer’s sun turns into frost
She still stores away things for safety
But the car keys are listed as lost
