Dedicated to Laurel Bennett

Lift up the lid
Take a quick peek with in
Tell me of what lies with in.

Did you see untold beauty?
Did you sense a love too great?
Did the light blind your eyes
Does your heart reflect its light?

Has the unknown whispered to you?
Has it told youa perfect ending
To this life wihtout bliss?
Has it pointed out the darkness?
And pointed out the life?

Has it made an impact?
Did it touch your heart?
This unknown thing
In a worn out box

Lift up the lid
Snap back the latch
Lets peek in
See what stirs with in

Memories of you
And memories of me
A world form the past
A gate to the future

Worn out past down
Down from the years
The box holds a secret
Story of one so dear

The wood of the cross
And the blood of the Christ
Make up the old rugged box
Our names engraved
A memory of the life he gave.

This is beautifully written. I can see your light shining above all. Giving dedication to your friend, and loving your friend, your words, as much as your actions, speaks loud. From the 1st stanza to the last stanza, I loved every written word. God bless you abundantly. Not just a poem, a dedication to your beloved friend.
I enjoyed this poem very, very much.
