She gave me her words,
adjective gift wrapping.
with noun polka dots,
verb ribbons.

I opened all the boxes,
one by one,
each one had a glowing piece
of her heart or soul in it.
I lay in the gift wrapping and ribbons
like a child on Christmas morning
with her soul and heart pieces
aglow around me.
My favorite constellation.

All she had were her words,
and all I had was her.
