Unlock The Chest

Take the key and unlock the chest,
That is where they are stored.
Stored in a chest in the back of one’s mind eye.
Shift through until I find the right one
Like bury treasure waiting to be found.
Each one unique in every way,
They hold that special value like gems of different shapes and sizes.
Pick one out and examine it, let it sparkle in the light.
See the crystals inside tell a story of some snippet of one’s life.
Some are as bright as day while others look clouded and grey.
These clouded greys begin to lose their focus,
They dim losing their clarity with time.
Over time new gems are added with bright colors,
You can see through the crystals bright as day
They are a wonder to see them dance in the light over and over again.
Placed back in the chest were they are stored
Waiting for another time when gems are needed
To see a mind’s story once more.
