Bed In A Shoe Box

©2013 Kirby Sanders.

If I could recapture
one small shred of innocence,
I would build it a beautiful bed
in a shoe box filled
with feathers, foam and scraps of silk
or velvet —
whatever treasures I could scrounge.

… Place it gently in that bed
and leave the cover off of the box.
Let it fly when ready
to grace someone else’s day.

Weep for a moment my loss
then rejoice
to know my loss
was someone else’s gain.
