I have a little jewelry box...
To plant my wishes
To hold my thoughts

Open the lock....
Hide the key
Everything's laying...
Deep down
Inside me

...Each piece tells a story
Where a memory lies
Each peice...
Adds a chapter
A moment in life

The corner of my dresser
Resides in its place
Every keepsake
Kept so safe...

Open the lock
Hide the key
This jewelry tells the story
The story
Of me

Year after year
Always it's there
Watching me grow
Filled with love
Embellished with care....

Time goes by
Wind sweeps through my hair
The box does not die
The jewelry...still there

The necklace holds my soul
I clasp my heart
Around my neck
My bracelet, my life line
The rings are my steps
Steps taken...steps met
Earrings whispering memories
Softly into my head

Generations pass
This jewelry
Still lasts
It's color does not tarnish Significance does not fade

The story goes on...
Every jewel speaks a word
Placed in the corner
This box will be heard

And till this day...
One thing still remains

I have a little jewelry box....

A jewelry box is not just a box that holds your jewelry...each piece holds a memory, a certain significance. Each piece holds a part of you, a laugh, a celebration a single memory throughout the years. The jewels tell the story of your life. Passed down from generation to generation, the boxes elegance never fades. Look for the pendant inside the box...and you'll find your soul.
