In a box, up on a shelf,
This is where I kept myself
I figured out a lot of stuff,
And some of it was kinda tough

Life and love and all about time,
And how I'd live the rest of mine
I knew I wanted to live my best
In case this life is a pass/fail test

The love I'd want would be rare
To venture out, I didn't dare
Men have never made the grade
So in my box I stayed and stayed

It was safe, I wouldn't get hurt
Or feel as if I was only dirt
When it was you that came around
I took a chance and dared come down

Off the shelf after ten long years
And with you - there are no fears
You are the one I learned about
The man I'll never be without

I thought I'd lost the light of day
As far as love went anyway
I thought I'd stay up there and mold
'Til I was very, awfully old

I didn't mind or give a care
I was pretty happy up there
But now complete my life will be
God above sent you to me!

one night at the airport...Childhood Memories...eight short weeks...your countenance...just watching tv...hoarse whispers...My One and Only...Tribute to M.J....Feel the need?...serving wench...the mistress...stolen hours...devotion...Master...apart

Oh my...too bizarre, this is...like your
my long lost soul twin...describing you,
and yet it's me! Love the poem!
