Here I hang with dust round the edges
No longer in vogue kept on an old ledge.
Memories I hold of people and places
One of a baby, flat on her tum.
silly hat on reaching down to her bum,
Child now grown up and in her teens,
another hat on wearing her jeans,
Beautiful, she was a winner in a show,
such a busy girl always on the go
Parents picture, on a cruise, looking happy,
Tad no longer here, so sad to loose
Pictures of her animals, Boxers 3
loved them all dearly, now here with me,
Holiday snaps, looking very snazzy,
First day in uniform trying to look bossy
Many pictures she has removed,
too painful to look at them, so nobody views
So many memories for her to look back.
Seems she has gone forward,
forgotten the past. I lay here unseen.
