Poem-A-Day November 5

prompt: Keep This ...

On Handing Over An Heirloom

Keep this ring.
Reset the diamonds?
Certainly. Make it yours,
cherish the memories
it evokes the way it is -
damaged (slightly)
unpolished (hasn't seen
the light for years)
but worthy of your life
& the love it (and you)
express. Nothing
is harder than diamonds.
Create the future
with that certainty.

Love from Mum.
