Visions of your smiling face
Play lovingly in my mind
As I sit and reminisce
Over what you've left behind

Within this cedar~lined chest
Lay momentos of your life
Treasures that had touched your heart
While you were Mother and Wife

Neatly folded with great care
Lay your wedding gown of white
Satin, lace and pearl adorned
It's such a beautiful sight

My fingers trembled slightly
As they brushed a velvet box
The lid softly squeaked open
Yielding the biggest of rocks

It sparkled in the sunshine
Just like your eyes used to do
A golden band worn with pride
A pledge of your love so true

I came across your Bible
The pages dog~earred and worn
Preserved and pressed within it
A single rose dried and torn

A gleaming golden locket
Perfumed letters galore
Snapshots of special moments
That were never shared before

A treasure chest of your love
A most precious gift to give
I will cherish it always
For as long as I shall live

This is precious Pinkalope!
I realize I'm "unique". But I have found that
reading your poetry and letting it move me also in terms of shades of pink adds a deeper level of enjoyment. ~L
