A Treasure Chest

I searched for many treasures that reminded me of you
Your precious heart of gold and your radiant smile too

Saw the grace of your steps as you strolled into a room
Walking like you did when I was the bride and you the groom

Looked for you out the window when the rain started to fall
Listening so intently for it seemed that I heard you call

Stared at your footprints that you left behind in the snow
Watched you shake and shivered as cold winds began to blow

Gazed at the glint in your eyes as you peered up to the sun
Looked at hands so rugged having toiled until the day is done

A lovely treasure you are to me and yes a whole lot more
A precious jewel waiting ever at the threshold to the door
