Recording life

She flips the colourful pages
Pausing to absorb the detail
Recalling the memories within
Asking about those she doesn’t know
Ribbon and glitter, buttons and pins
Letters and stories to explain
The story of our family scrapped and inscribed
Around photos of our special moments
In volumes of albums added to all the time
To be passed on to them one day
When I am no longer around
Tales of history to tell my grandchildren
Heirlooms of record about who we were.
