The neatly wrapped packages,
where her memories are stored,
are begging to be noticed, to be heard.
They were boxed up; locked away so very long ago.
It is time and she's afraid.
She does not recall where she buried the keys.
But the memories...impatient, persistent, insistent...
tear their way through carefully tied bows.
