In the top of the house

tucked away

among dust, cobwebs, and memories

I met you

for the first time

although I have always known you

in many ways




locked away in a box

sealed in a paper tomb

there you have slept for almost 40 years

forgotten

but not really




I touched you for the first time today

all soft curls and tangles

I felt you, in a lock of your hair

Great-Grandmother

have you waited all this time

to meet me too?

Very wonderfully written. This makes for an enjoyable read.
