inside your soldier hands 

my silver heart 

of sterling i am valued 

more than gold

undo the tiny clasp 

find you and I

the wealth lies in the 

timeless bond we hold 


i am the reason why 

you fight to live 

there’s nothing else of me

that i can give 

our lips meet daily 

in the desperate dark 

come life or death we’ll

ne’er be torn apart

    Not keen on romantic poetry, but this is a good 'un, Cassie.

          Deep meaning here it is not what we are made of that dictates value but memories and feelings. So true Cassie said in such a wonderful metaphor.

          • Cassie58

              Why, yes, you're the reason why I choose to live, of course. Dunno why I didn't think of you earlier! lol.
              Note to self: Do shut up Orchi. lol.

                    Looks like I ticked my own box. How can I fav my own poem when I donโ€™t know how to fav anyone elseโ€™s? ๐Ÿ˜€ My scrolling on my phone is getting me into trouble. My head really isnโ€™t that big!!!
