Valerie & Elmer

Valerie was blooming
and Elmer was brought
long after my love
for you was born.

Still they came
in carefully wrapped colourful boxes
and blindingly beautiful
hand-made cards

to seal
the fallen petals
and to heal
the scars in my trunk.

I welcome them all
in my shelves, drawers and desks,
as I have welcomed you four years ago
in every inch of my body, heart and soul.
Nicole Rodrigues
