box of treasures;

a box of treasures hidden under the bed
tucked away and long forgotten
keeping its solitude until the time was right

to take a look inside
is to take a walk down memory lane
a photo or two, here and there
small mementos to you from them

some things in that treasure box
hard to remember where the came from
and even harder
why they are there

the many years from childhood to adulthood
and everything in between
led to the present
shaping you into who you are today

all the secrets deep inside
you carry them to your dying day
the box of treasures you hold dear
to follow you into the afterlife.
