An Old Forgotten Book
Hidden away in an attic corner
I found an old forgotten book
Dusting off it's old cover
I knew it deserved a second look.
Someone had written loving words
In a simple sort of way
Telling about family happenings
On their very special days.
Under the last entry in the book
I found a faded scribbled name
It was signed by a proud Mother
Like my Mother would do the same.
With teary eyes I closed the book
The last chapter in a Mother's life
Realizing how lucky some man was
Having this lady as his wife.
