keep it forever

someday you'll look up at the stars with the same wonder i did
but you'll remember them clearer than i do
i envy your youth, your joy, your carefree demeanor
and i want you to keep it forever
locked up in the forefront of your mind.

don't forget to let the ivy grow wild on the walls of your secret garden
let it grow old and ancient, let the walls crumble when the time is right
do not try to water plants that are already dead
you'll stay youthful always if you had a garden in the first place


  1. I love your poetry, Kathryn.:)

  2. Beautiful <3 I especially love the metaphor of a secret garden. Your imagery is always so gorgeous; I feel like I'm really there!
