Without Ribbons

Without Ribbons
Form: Free Verse
Theme: Love
Subject: A gift

The gift I give you
is not something I don’t want
its not gone out of fashion
as it always had its own style
it may be a bit patched up here and there
but it isn’t broken
and it’s not missing a lid
like some old bit of Tupperware
it has no money value
yet I think it is beyond value
a world where feelings are barren
the unwritten words of poetry
the unsaid expressions between lovers
this is my gift to you
to touch your heart with all that is good in me
in ways your soul can hear
before the ripples of life
distract like a pebble in still pond
my gift is my heart
without ribbons
for the love within can not be bound
and I give it to you
