A Place Inside of Me


A place not found on any map

It resides inside of me.

My soul it keeps all memories good

under lock and key.

Friendly laughter, loving looks

pages from beloved books

safe from sinister, crafty crooks

And stolen cannot be.

A land I see in my mind’s eye

Full of treasures one can’t buy

Only I alone can see

A place inside of me.


Your Gift


Your Gift

Soft and warm

Or bright like daisies

Sometimes wide as the churning sea

the best gift

is your  smile

that reaches your eyes

when you look at me.
