White one, with flowers pink and red-
Lately, you've been dwelling in my head.
Dearest shoe-box filled with baubles,
It's true; your top still wobbles.
You're too full of memories and squabbles.
Dearest shoe-box of worn-out thoughts,
Let me open you up, re-connect the dots.
I'm sick of letting the memories rot.
Dearest shoe-box with a blanket inside,
Look at all the trinkets those folds can hide!
There's the photo I always kept at my side.
Dearest shoe-box with secrets old and worn,
I think it's time to mend my heart, still broken and torn.
It's time to let go of the hurt and scorn.
