My Treasure Chest

one special part of my heart
I keep just for me
so when I am sad 
I open myself up
to indulge in memories 
I have locked up safely
finding images for my viewing only
I will cherish these thoughts today
now that you are gone 
I see a profound truth
you are slowly slipping away 
from my dreams
your smile, your love, your life
locked in a treasure chest 
no riches or gold will I find 
only precious collections to realize
prospects are forever gone
do you see me the same 
do you love me the same
you gave me so much
becoming a part of me
inside I take a peek and find
the golden glow of your presence
still here  
flowing into my mind
where only you hold the key to the
greatest prize in my treasure chest
to believe
