The girl thrived on new
new places
new people
new opportunities
That's all her spirit knew
Knew when her time was up in one place
And knew to move to another
Knew when she was no longer needed in a life
Knew when to move on to new things
Though she kept a little of all the old in her heart
Old memories
old scents
old pictures
That's all her old heart knew
A heart old with goodbyes
Goodbyes welcome
And goodbyes unwanted
But her heart knew
Trusted that it's caretaker was wise
So she took every break
every ache
kept them safely tucked away
The caretaker
With gentleness
would take her scarred heart
In his scarred hands
And giver her
