If my heart was a suitcase

If my heart was a suitcase
That could only fit five things

In my heart I’d keep love…
Love for beauty
Love for fun
Love for my friends and family
Love for light

In my heart I’d keep, joy…
Joy of wonder
Joy of creativity
Joy of travel
Joy of wisdom

In my heart I’d keep freedom
Freedom to be me
Freedom to share my thoughts
Freedom to learn and grow
Freedom to explore

In my heart I’d keep music
Music of poetry and song
Music of nature songs
Music of the world
Music for my soul

In my heart I’d keep kindness
Kindness to you and me
Kindness to melt the hearts
Kindness to share and give
Kindness to grow and thrive

If my heart was a suitcase
These are the things I would take along
