In a box [Poem]

A box of memories.
A box of memories.

We don't fit in a box.

It can't contain all the memories,

all the songs,

all the kisses,

all the arguments,

the car's rides,

the surprises,

the tears,

the calls,

the messages.

All these things don't fit in a heart,

how could they fit in a box?

If my life ---all the memories, hugs, kisses, surprises, etc. could fit in a box I would wrap it and give it to my family and encourage them to the same.

Voted up and interesting....great.

This is why we need to 'think outside of the box'! Very cute!
