Something Old, Something New

Everything he had he gave to me

This house, envelope, box and a key,
was all he had left to me.

With trembling hands I opened the note,
heart tortured, I read what he wrote.

All my worldly possessions I leave behind
I pray that for you, the years will be kind.

The key opens the box, my prizes are hidden there.
Your birth bracelet, first tooth, locks from your hair.

My grandfathers pocket watch, it's old and worn,
Dad gave it to me the day you were born.

Your mothers wedding rings, the love they bring.
She was full of life, she could make my heart sing.

These things forever kept you close to my heart,
now a new beginning for you, maybe a fresh start.

For your Mother and I our pain is all gone.
Always be happy my girl, stay strong.

Now stop, don't allow the tears to well.
The house is yours to keep or sell.

Please don't hurry enjoy the ride.
We'll be waiting on the other side

Love you always.
Dad.
