She presented the gift, a sprig of spring
leaves glossy and tender with love
A moment to be recalled again and again
as childhood slips into memory.
I recall the dandelions presented with their value beyond gold. The smooth pebbles their shapes so special, shining with the color of innocence.
Bits of nature shared with a sense of wonder. Fallen butterflies, Sand encrusted seashells, daisies to count the ways, each more precious than diamonds.
For the briefest of days our fingers entwined, we walk our path together. All too soon our embrace proves a fleeting moment. Yet memories, a priceless gift remain
Soothing my heart that this is the way that life unfolds.
