Love Scraps

by Janis Gaines

Little love scraps
Surround me everywhere
In every peripheral corner
I see clearly
A reminder of the love we share
A note on the fridge
A twisted pipe cleaner heart
A card from yesteryear
All speak to me in whispers
As I pass by, oft unaware
Yet the soft voice of love has spoken
An eternal word to be heard
And when I cast my gaze upon them
My soul is still stirred
And whether distant or silent
The message remains clear
Though time may play tricks with the memory
In my heart you are here
