There’s Something I’ve Kept

There’s Something I’ve Kept

By Michele Habel-Coffey

 

There’s something I’ve kept

A remnant, a thread

A paper thin stub

Tucked inside a pocket

 

Not inside a thin book

Not inside a small box

But inside a small mind

Full of fear like the pox

 

There’s something I’ve kept

To remind me of you

There’s something I’ve kept

From some moments of truth

Full of love and of youth

It’s something…
