A Box of Keepsakes

It is a delight
of his heart, that thumps
to the rhythm of love
like the beating of drums,

to reminisce on how
tempests were conquered,
with a love that grows
and patience he has mustered.

Through time he has collected
a kiss from an angel above,
a picture of bliss,
a doodle of love,
a cute party hat,
a group of friends,
passes to free rides,
tickets to youth trends.
These memories, they linger
and put a smile on his face;
he chose to keep them stored away
inside a box of keepsakes.

You are one of the sweetest boyfriends any man can ever have.

Whenever I feel rejected by this world, I return to my own box of keepsakes and I will be fine in no time.
