This is a locket.

Lockets are wonderful things!

They hold your good memories,

Keep them close to your heart

Many people think that’s all there is

But lockets are even more amazing

And have less well-known abilities

Such as locking away your fear

Your sadness

Your insecurity.

They lock them away forever

And never let them free.

And protect you forevermore

Until the one you love

Comes back to ferry them away

Away from you

Away from your heart

I’m proud to have this burden

And that will never change
