A poem written by my Mum, for me. I treasure this.
I’ll Never Forget

Who could forget
Those dark little eyes
That stared at me
With such surprise?
And reproach, perhaps,
That she had been born,
Snatched from the womb
So Cosy and warm
Not me, I’ll never forget

Who could forget
Those first baby words?
The sweetest sounds
I ever heard
The first faltering steps
She took on that day
The journey through life
Was well on its way
Not me, I’ll never forget

Who could forget
Her first day at school?
Out into the world,
Which can be so cruel
Hand clutching mine
As we walked through the door
How grown up she looked,
A baby no more
Not me, I’ll never forget

Who can forget
The in-between years?
The search for the future,
The laughter, the tears
Time passes so quickly,
But left in its wake
Are memories so precious
Which no-one can take
Oh no, I’ll never forget.
