Keep it close, don’t show

It to anyone who may

wrestle it away.

—-

Hide it, eyes can’t see

where you put it, because then

they’ll try to take it.

—-

Lock it up, and down

It’s not safe outside the safe

so keep the door locked

—-

If you take it out

be mindful of what you’ve done

by exposing it

—-

Don’t weep at its theft

It’s not the taking that hurts,

but when it’s returned.

—-

Learn to accept it

if you offer to someone,

and they won’t take it.

—-

Rejection happens

if you’re not what someone wants,

not checking their box.

—-

Learn to be careful

and show it from a distance,

where it can’t be snatched.

—-

Someone may want it

and won’t want to give it back.

But keep it secured.

—-

If they have a key,

make sure it’s not for another

before you try it.

—-

God still knows what best

He created you with Love

so you could give it.

—-

He sees every tear

and bottles it with great care,

to show you later.

—-

He sees you walking

and knows every step you take.

Because He’s been there.

—-

Keep your heart guarded.

It is “the wellspring of Life.”

Your precious trinket.

    If they have a key, make sure it’s not for another before you try it. Gosh this stanza/haiku was so deep! Loved this so much!
