My open box

This box sits on the windowsill
And few stop to open it
And look inside at the trinkets 
That I placed so very neatly

My box sits waiting
But those who pass see no value
And the ones who open it take the brightest ones
And leave dried leaves

Our box was closed 
Only opening for the very best memories
But then I see I am the one opening it
Not that traveler

What box is this?
That hurts me
And has scratches
And hurts itself

But I'm still leaving it out
And I hope you 
Kind and warm passerby
Will open it with me
