A Box in my Attic

There is a box
In my attic 
Filled with
Bits of chalk
And pencil shavings
Shoelaces
And lipstick
Homemade cards
And old ticket stubs. 

There is a box
In my attic
Filled with
Ice cream in July
And hot cocoa
Marshmallows
And spaghetti
Orange slices
And beers on the beach.

There is a box
In my attic
Filled with
Bits and pieces
Of life.

There is a box
In my attic
Filled with
Sunrises
And bike rides
Oceans
And sidewalks
Smiles
And booboos.

There is a box
In my attic
Filled with
Creamy ivory icing
And yellow cake
Champagne
And Hershey's bars
Orange juice
And syrup.

There is a box
In my attic
Filled with
Giggles
And moans
Sneezes 
And burps
Sobs 
And countless 'our songs'.

There is a box
In my attic
Filled with
Bits and pieces 
Of life.
