LETTERS FROM MUM
“I trace the line of each letter with my finger…
Absorbing every single word
I Imagine your face as you wrote each one; no doubt giggling at your own jokes
I smile … but at the same time a wave of heavy, sadness engulfs me and I can’t stop the tears.
Happy tears, sad tears , innocent tears for a time when I naively thought you’d be around forever .
I smell the paper; I’m disappointed that it doesn’t smell of you … year’s stored safely away in a Cigarette box has put pay to that.
I hold the letters against my heart and imagine that you are holding me
A part of you is etched on those precious pieces of paper. Conversations that can’t be erased . Words forever embedded in my heart “
I wrote this poem after I was approached by the lovely Emma from Inscripture to see whether I would like to collaborate with them and choose a piece of their beautiful jewellery.
After looking into the company I couldn’t say no.
It’s no ordinary jewellery … they take special words from letters, cards etc and engrave them onto jewellery – ‘You live the moments, we create the memories’
It is a beautiful concept and something that would make a special keepsake / gift.
