The Magic Box

I will put in the box
the tears I've shed forming a river on a cold night,
the sight and sound of a motorcycle and a crash,
the smell of a hospital when the earth turned black.
I will put in the box
the nightmares I've had on cold winter nights wondering what would happen next,
a sip hot cocoa to warm me up and calm me down,
a falling tear that I shed when I heard the news.
I will put into the box
