Mementos in a box, from years gone by
Thought to have been disposed of long ago
A glance, when something purple caught my eye
A ribbon from someone I used to know

I gently gave a tug like way back when
It slipped from it's confines just like before
Then instantly relived it all again
And just like her, it leaves me wanting more

But even though it was so delicate
This ribbon in it's femininity
Tied in her hair it looked so elegant
Yet strong enough to bind her memory

This ribbon with it's strength beyond compare
Ties fifty years to my first love affair

Daniel, I feel that endings are as important as beginnings when writing poetry. A good beginning makes the reader want to read your poem. Then a good ending leaves one remembering your poem as unforgettable. You always seem to manage to write unforgettable poems which is a tribute to your talent! This is another unforgettable poem with an exquisite ending! I loved it! POTD says it all! Congratulations my friend! 7 ; )
