Gifting of treasures
Unravelling what’s hidden within,
Laying buried beneath untouched,
Forgotten under the sands of time,
Faded from memory it once existed.
Precious treasures collecting dusts,
Tender touches, long forgotten,
Unused, unadmired by keen eyes,
Held in darkness, withdraw within,
Locking, sealing shut the way inside.
Slowly, cautiously opening the seals,
Peeking into the light, treading carefully,
Afraid being hurt, all over again,
Exposing oneself vulnerable,
Risking the heart, shattering a million pieces.
Like watching a flower blossom,
Revealing the beauty inside,
Maturing slowly, becoming who you are,
Filling my heart with such joys,
Watching you unfold, like fine arts,
Majestic, divine, angelic in appearance,
Yet, your true beauty lay within.
