in the memory box

In the memory box
I put your face
In these first days of existence

Expanding from an inside face
To one others can see

Containing
Everyone who ever loved you
And loved the idea of a future

Ah
No birth no death
And yet I am holding you

Of all beings
Wearing the face of so many
I love
