She is broken and old
Lifeless and dull
Broken old furniture
Cracked and peeling paint
Floors stained and lifting
Photographs of her glory days reflect a simpler life and happy family times
Treasured memories live in my heart forever
Mum was right to go when she did
She didn’t want to rot away before our eyes
Like her house
Should we let the old house rest in peace and follow new adventures somewhere else
or give her new life?
Maybe the time has come to let her slip away gracefully and with dignity like my mum.
