Erection of a Wall

by Carolyn Willis-Smith
I leave your side tomorrow.
Tomorrow I shall take
all the beautiful memories
of yesterday...
Tomorrow I shall pack
with care,
all my memories,
all my hopes,
all my dreams,
all my desires.
I shall place them,
neatly stored,
in a tiny box,
placing them
for safe keeping
in the cornerstone
of my heart...
The construction,
the erection will
then begin
of a carefully laid wall
to seal in that tiny box,
so fragile,
and there be kept
until the beating
of my heart
ceases...
