• Please understand
    that this little thing I hold
    is not just my heart
    its my soul

    I won't wrap it up for you
    in shiny paper
    or place this beating thing
    in a box

    I'll place it in your hands
    and hope to god its safe
    right there
    withen your chest

    I won't ask you
    not to break it
    only that
    you keep it
