Happy Mother's Day

A poem I wrote remembering my mother on Mother's Day.

Happy Mother's Day to all mums where Mother's Day is recognized today. 



    The night was dark, I was drawn to the attic,
    And there I sat on the dusty old box
    My mind wandering back in the past,
    To the sweet lady that's in my locket.

    Complexion of peaches and cream,
    Eyes that always smiled,
    Colour bluer than the day time sky,
    Brighter than a star.

    She walked each path of life with pride,
    Head always held high,
    Always smiled,
    I thought of the sweet lady that's in my locket
    With the young one by her side.

    Today I remember her, today is her day,
    - I always remember her -
    For she is my mother, and I am that child,
    In the locket.

  4. Funny, you know, how I took my mom for granted for many years. Thank God the dear lady has lived long enough for me to be able to express my love for her.

    Hope you are having a wonderful day!

  6. Hello Clint,
    Thank you, had a lovely day.

    Filip & Kristel,
    Thank you.

    As far as I am aware I would have to start from the beginning with another photo to make a locket, which I can do if I have the photo.
    Lockets can also be made in a darker shade of silver and also in silver colour.
