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.
