Uncluttered


As we sat this afternoon,
the sun was in your hair,
and you wore
your uncluttered heart on your sleeve.
You told me you'd rather
give good things this Christmas
to children with less,
than get more for yourself.
You knew what that meant,
and you meant what you said.
And I want you to know,
I mean to become just like you
when I grow up.
