THESE OLD CARDS                  

Heirlooms, these old cards

with her lovely penmanship

Snippets of advice 

still live in delicate lines

where love is immortalized 

*Reposted for Craig

**Originally dedicated to PD on the death of her StepMum

About this Poem

Sadie was my stepmother and she and I were -- at first-- cautious acquaintances , then friends, later good friends, later still best friends, then (for a bit) enemies, then... mother and daughter. I miss her. Some families are given. Some are made. Sadie died of Leukemia. My father joined her two years later after a battle with colon cancer. I often take out her letters and cards---she always added so much to those store-bought cards.

    Short and sweetly melancholy as only my dear friend north of the border can do...I identify well because I have a step-mother who I very much resented for a long time. As time passed we became close and now she is my mom and I am her son...Sending Soup mail - Tim

    So touching, my dear Ontario neighbour! As a former graphic designer, I certainly understand and appreciate good penmanship! I live in Newmarket... where abouts are you? Love and joy, Jack xox

    You are the best Cyndi---always! Funny that my Mom in law's story is similar to your relationship with your step mom. Not surprised, you are easy to love. Spooky that my Dad died of colon issues as well. Have a super and happy Christmas. XXOO Mail

    When I saw "short" I just had to come see this one and I was not disappointed. It's awesome, Cyndi, and what a wonder about the relationship you had with your stepmother.

    So precious these dear heirlooms that we cling to upon our hearts, when all the storms of earth come to pass, all that remains are those precious twilight memories, moments we once did share, through it all, we recall the bad and the good, and are glad for the bonds that we have made, sending you my love, Dear Cyndi, xxx
