My Little Package

by Thomas K. Hunt

My life is wrapped up in one little package
That is buried in my heart
To give it away and leave behind
I’d have to rip my heart apart

There would be an empty hole
That no one could ever seal
A wound so vast and painful
I know would never heal

It’s hard to see these words I write
As I tremble and I cry
For without this little package
Part of me will surely die

It may be hard for some
To understand the way I feel
If they had this little package
They’d know my hurt is real

Life is full of sacrifices
Weighing the good against the bad
This little innocent package of good
Was the best thing I ever had

Goodbye is such an ugly word
I prefer, see you soon
I want to hold onto my promise
To dance with you in June
