Walk carefully my friend
Over paper thin sleeves
There is a treasure there
Not made for thieves.

It's not of silver
Or of precious gold
It's created by something
So very old.

Stolen many times
Battered and worn
Returned once again
Shaken and torn.

Always mended
And put back in place
Can't see the scars
Not even a trace.

If you look closely
Then you may see
The happiness there
That can or will be.

Handle it gently
When it you do find
There's not another
It's one of a kind.

If you accept it
Cherish it whole
This is my heart
My body and soul.

I don't know who wrote this, but every now and then, I read it and with time it's become more and more meaningful..

Hugs
