Wooden Heart

On my first and only trip to Munich so far, I bought a wood heart. It is made of three different woods, one light, one dark and one a colour that is a blend of the two. Because it is made of wood, it never feels cold to the touch and even in winter, you can hold on to it and it will be pleasant and warm. Because it is made of wood, it is solid, firm and unyielding, thoroughly reassuring in its presence. Not heavy and yet possessing a strong presence. 
 I’ve held on to it for the many years since then. I had actually thought of giving it to the first person I had gotten together with, giving it to her as a token. But that didn’t happen, and when I found it again, the second person I had gotten together with in the past had moved on too. Who, I wonder will I give this wood heart to now that I’ve found it again? Or will I lose it again this time never to find it…
