He made her dream.
He made her remember possibilities...
Huge possibilities ran through her head.
It was the spring of youth
When they found something rare.
It glistened and reflected brighter than the ocean.
It humbled them both.
Eyes shining with wonder.
Until he packed it away
In a suitcase he kept in the back of his closet -
Covered with dirty laundry and dust.
She kept it on the nightstand,
Hidden, but alive,
Hoping to once again
Dance in the glow of that day.
