A Ring Of Memory

the other day
where she had put it

its lock undone
the ring brought memories
one by one.

‘With this ring’

Memories bought out to the light and then we reminisce about it if just for a little while. Brings some of the joys of love back to us. Good.

Such beautiful language on such a said subject. This was a poignant delight to read. I especially liked 'and now his home was in her heart.' 10. Hugs Anna xxx

Dear CJ, This is a tender and touching poem on the aftermath of loss, and how we honor the one we loved and how those memories can trigger tears of healing, because the wound must be reopened with each look at that token and hopefully, the healing will make the heart stronger and more resilient. A lovely and heartfelt poem. With warm regards, Hugh
