A chipped enamel first love ring

my mother’s broken watch strap

my sons toys and babygrows

and a dog tag from and old pet


A handkerchief complete with holes

from bygone days of infant school

photographs of streams and ducks

a wedding cake horseshoe just for luck


A letter from a different era

a mobile phone with your last text

an old cassette you made for me

a treasure trove, I won’t forget
