(every precious thing)

so every precious thing she owns
fits neatly in a shoebox
she keeps beneath her bed for when
she most needs cheering up

there is a picture of her dad
before he died when she was four,
a picture of her mom before
her mind completely went

she’s learned to do the best she can
she’s starting college in a week
now may the Lord watch over her
and every precious thing
she owns
