In all the white shirts I fold

In my frilly white blouse and the lace I wear no more

 

In the crispy cool breeze that touches me

In my long dark wispy hair no more

And now in the short grey curly mop I sport

 

In every piece of music I play

In every happy song that moves me

In every sad song that breaks me

 

In those long traffic snarls

In the far distances that I fly

 

In every cup of tea I brew

In every cup of coffee that I don’t

 

In every nude lipstick I wear

In the kohl that rims my eyes

In the toenails that I don’t paint anymore

 

In every plank I hold

In every mile I run

 

In every shiver down my spine

In every shower I take alone

 

In every dream I dream

In every hope that breaks

 

In all that pain in the world

In all that love in the world

In all that joy in the world

There are pieces of YOU!
