Treasure (a poem)

If I could I would hoard your smiles

like a dragon collecting treasure.

If I could I would bottle up your laughter

to listen to on lonely, rainy days.

In my mind I replay the look on your face

when you turn the corner and see me.

And I feel warmth blossoming in my chest

when you choose to sit beside me

to eat your breakfast.

I never want to forget the sight of you

buried in rainbows,

playing in your ball pit.

I always want to remember the feel of you

hugging my knees.

If I could I would keep you forever.

I hope you know you’ll have my heart forever.

And I keep you tight inside my chest

because you’re my treasure.

The Brown House (a poem)

Put a sign on the door with your name on it in stickers. Fall asleep to sound of your mom running water and wake to the smell of blubbery muffins feeling safe just like I did. Have sleepovers with you
