Pieces of My Heart. {Poem}

Razvan Narcis Ticu/Unsplash

I am saving up my thoughts
For you today

Dropping them
Like pebbles into a sacred
Pouch strung round
My neck
Keeping them warm
Against my heart
Still pulsing with life
And energy
Until the moment
Is right
Until you are ready
To receive them
Until I can place them
Within your open hands
Enclosing them
Within my own
And meeting your eyes
With honesty and love
Say, “Here…these are for you;
They are my heart.”
