I was asked a question the other day - via my Journal - it went something like this....If I had been evacuated - and had every material thing I would need - what would be the three personal items sentimel or otherwise would I want to take with me:
My Answers were :-
1) The letters my Mum left for us and found after she died
2) My Dads ring - I bought him for his 70th Birthday
3) My Hubbys watch which still ticks even after two and a half years after he died
Makes me feel he is still with me.....
Following is poem Mum Left :
Think of me at night when sleep is near, and I who loved you am so far away.
Think of me then, and I will come to you, Nor leave you until night turns to day.
Stretch forth thy hand, and through the depth of dark - another hand shall touch your fingertips.
And as of old my voice shall breath your name and press a kiss upon your sleeping lips.
I wonder what things you would take with you ?....Ally
