THIS IS OUR SON IN THE MALVERN HILLS, WORCESTERSHIRE, ENGLAND - SUMMER 1984

 


Up in the attic

Down on my knees,

Lifetimes of boxes

Timeless to me.

Letter and photographs

Yellowed with years

Some bringing laughter

Some bringing tears.


Time never changes

The memories, the faces

Of loved ones, who bring to me

All that I come from

And all that I'm going to be.

My precious family

Is more than an heirloom to me.
