Collect your own wooden box, fill with wonderful memories

Deep dark wood
Only secret wood
My grandmother said
Only the oak would guard my secrets

Small bags filled with ribbons
and photographs of us on a tiny fishing boat
Old pictures from past lands travelled
with us wearing handmade hats and coats

Picture frames that were previously broken and left abandoned
Collected thoughts and poems that reflected sadness
Drawings designs for a young girl’s wedding dress
Broken old necklaces from my grandmother

This box reflects my life in objects that shine beautiful shades of colour
Against the people, personalities, friends
and a hidden mother
future dreams and a few regrets
Fill my heart with joy that there must be hope
that I will continue to have room
for much more objects
love, life adventures and happiness
And perhaps another wooden box

Create your own secret wooden box

I have collected wonderful memories all in little boxes. They help me remember moments of happiness, sadness and moments I regret. All these things help remind me who I am, who I am meant to be, and how I will achieve this. The tiny pink bracelet was give to me by someone who wanted to thank me for supporting them. The Bunny Tin was given to me by someone I love very much.
