Lis,

   So many tears. We are packing to move again (hopefully the last) but over the years we have accumulated so many memories stashed on shelves not even remembered we had. Rosemary wants to take them all... darn it, I can't say no more.

touching, very very touching, for a very touching and moving time.

OMG! were the first words out of my mouth & chills such as I've never had. Today was not a good day to read this one. It only makes me weep more & I keep getting strange looks from people at work!  Beautiful!

Cheryl, You can come clean mine out if you want to. Thanks for the comments

Nan, These are fast moving posts. I find myself missing many. Thanks for catching it

Corinne. Glad you liked this poem, and thanks for you remarks

Lovebug, You aren't the only one, I didn't either. When I start writing, I never know where a poem is going to go. Thank you

James, it is so nice to see the men who have been touched by some sentimental thoughts. Thank you for commenting
Liz
