The Things I Cherish

Written by: Caren Krutsinger

The things I value,
The things I cherish,
Are things no one else will
When I perish

Do I write a missive
Explaining the why?
Would this help save things
After I die?

This brown dead rose,
A gift from your dad,
Brings back the best night
I ever had.

This bead of pink
Once on a baby’s wrist
Only memory left
Barely a wisp

The things I value,
The things I cherish,
Are things no one else will
When I perish
