About the Poem
No matter how much love we give, sometimes we have to save a little for ourselves.
|by Crystal Kniss
A forest of friendship,
A garden of love,
An ocean of kisses,
A bushel of hugs
A handful of wishes,
A pocket of dreams,
A big box of tenderness
Busting its seams
A cozy warm blanket
Tucked up to my ears,
Made of velvet rose petals,
Love letters and tears
A chest full of promises,
Drawer full of chances,
A great big red barn
Full of all of life's answers
A little red ribbon
To tie it all up,
A buffalo nickel
Stuck in for good luck
This is the present
I'll give to myself
The moment you put
My love on the shelf
I'm not afraid of not being your pleasure
Cause I've got a little red box full of treasures.
