Inside this little locket of mine I keep all my memories of old childhood laughter shared with siblings, smiles of mom and dad upon a floral bed of written words, a scribbled diary of gold holding the treasures of a well lived life, a quiet story of youth Inside the ocean of my mind swims the history of my days high school dances that never were and dates that never trailed sober with imagination I lived inside this tick tock amulet of mine making up stories that brimmed with life and always kept time; I danced with every star, and waltzed with every dusk lit moon inside my room I was a trapped butterfly longing to be set free and then the day came when love met me and I flew away to a land of greener pasture where my heart could finally sing A cameo, a broach, an heirloom of old, keeping me alive that is what my heart is, this is how it feels, as I grow old inside this little locket called my heart I keep all my memories although my youth has slipped away like yesterday's flurries, I keep each memory inside my trinket heart, all fire and soul arteries and vessel, all pumping with life and all, very good.
