A MILLION SMILES

A chest of love -made by Logan.

A chest of love -made by Logan.

 

All my life,

I have wondered.

Can I save this smile

And place it in a box.

A gift for sadness,

Darkness and grief.

 

A collection of them

In a day.

Garnered while watching

Butterflies, sunsets and

Couples in love.

 

Kind words multiplied,

Laced in golden threads.

Laid gently

As treasures

Upon his wounded soul.

 

A chest so filled

With love, amazement

And joy.

 

This would be

My gift to you.
