The Treasure Box - Poem by Paige Scott

I have a treasure, dear friend of mine.
I have cherished it long, you know.
Really, it’s a part of me;
I am ready to share it though.

It isn’t very beautiful—
In fact, it’s rather plain.
But I give you possession—
Don’t take it with disdain.

I put it in a little box and
Locked it with a key.
But now I give them both to you.
Do keep them safe for me.

The treasure box, within its walls,
Holds something fervent and true.
Though precious as I think it to be,
It's not fit for one royal as you.

I know it mustn’t seem like much,
But I give it, full of care.
And I don’t expect one in return.
I wouldn’t even dare.

So now this pitiful thing is yours.
I give it to you this day.
And for your lifetime, it is yours
To keep safe for always.

    Very nicely written, and it shows real emotion. The unspecified (but all the more interesting for that) treasure is clearly more valuable than it appears. If it is your heart, or your love, it is certainly worth a lot, and the one you give it to should treasure it. (Report)Reply

    Nice Paige, good subject. Reminds me of my Secret Love poem. I like your style and you may change over your lifetime but your writing style will probably remain the same but you will just polish and enhance it over the years.
    My compliments to you at this stage in your writing.
