The Magic Box


I will put in the box
The memory of a lost friend,
Who left to be a Falcon,
In hope he will be a Mustang again.

I will put in the box
The sweet smell of summer,
The cool touch of the ocean,
The sound of crashing waves.

I will put in the box
The halted breathing from a first kiss,
A smile from graduation,
The skipped heartbeat from a new car.

I will put in the box
A 27th letter and a pink moon,
A cheetah with strips,
And a zebra with spots.

My box is made from purple silver
With floating clouds on the inside.
The bottom is endless.

I will keep memories in my box,
(Bitter-sweet, happy, and bad)
To keep them safe and hidden,
From anyone or anything
That could have the potential
To ruin them.

The 3rd stanza is emotions people feel as they grow up. Emotions you never really feel again.

That—"Heaven" is—to Me!
