I give you all

I emptied myself out Into your hands. I gave you my all To protect me again.  You won't disappoint me You never have.  So I don't fear  That my life's in your hands.  By Evelyn Creon

There are shelves for shirts and sweaters, There are hangers for his jeans, A drawer for socks and underwear, A rack for magazines. There's a fish tank and a birdcage, Perched upon the handlebars,  A lookcase, and telescope  To watch the moon and stars. There's a telephone and blender, And a stove to cook his meals.  There's a sink to do the dishes Somehow fastened to the wheels. There's a portable
