The best gifts I occasionally receive
are memories that I hold dear to me.
They are stories, I like to believe,
that I will read when I ache for normality.
If you keep me company for a while,
I can tell you stories of my home,
a place that is filled with heart-warming smiles,
and soft words that never make you feel alone.
A tender moment so profoundly full
with love and togetherness from our hearts,
where a child sang from deep within her soul,
a melody from where sadness departs.
Tell me which one it is you wish to hear
so we can slowly begin to disappear.
