Closest to my heart
(for my mother on my birthday)

what lies closest to my heart
stays in my heart

deep buried within my soul
untouched… safe

i nurse it… i nurture it
hidden away from the world

i talk to it in my dreams
i play with it in my mind

yes… what lies closest to my heart
stays boxed up… in my heart

and… this is where you’ve been
all this time… since you left
