Music box

Back to my sweet memory
when grandma was still there
She had a lovely music box

when she opened it
the box was playing
such a beautiful melody

embedded in my memory
there was
a little fairy 
dressed in
ballet dancer
rotated to
the sound of music
When I was upset
Or was afraid of
grandma would open
her Music Box
So there
went all the fears

When I felt hopeless
in difficult 
grandma opened
It back 
restored my spirits

When i felt lonely
I listened to it
Comforted my heart

the music box is here
on the palm of my hand
I open
it for you

listen to the music calling
and look
how beautiful
this tiny fairy 
for you
to return 
all your loves and happiness

my dearest all
thank you
for your sweet smiles
very entertaining
my little fairy

in my music box

    Hi Sukmawait,~ Did you really think I'd leave without stopping by to say Good-bye. Never, Muwahahahaha! Why the word alone sounds -forever and difficult. LOL, I love this place and the poets. A couple of soup friends and I are taking a short vacation. REMEMBER! The Best Thing About Leaving is the "RETURN." I will leave in good faith, in hopes you don't forget me, and you are looking forward in having me visit you and your poems in the future. HAHA, I will bring a new me when I return. "I Can't wait to see you again:) If you ever want me to read a certain poem or you wish to say hi... Drop by my E-Mail Address. :) Sincerely yours ~Always & Forever~ The Sweet Poet Destroyer
