“All Mine” by Slings & Arrows



It is the strength in me that lets me stand in front of you
not my money or my looks
though it helps to be rough around the edges
this I have learned from you
my mind counts your heartbeats
paints them into a picture
crafts them into a dream
I love waiting for you
you leave a hamper at my door
it’s wicker weave squeaks with hidden treats
one by one I build my smile
yes I do smile these days
not my favourite hobby
the invisible weight I carried was all mine
it’s pockets filled with trouble
fingered to a high polish
but now I smile when your wicker hamper
arrives for me
