Pages of me by Adri Buys

Poem

It carries my memories
preciously banded with years of dust
seemingly cold letters on the pages
vividly comes alive with feelings
it binds the footsteps of life
A soft caress from the stories that live inside
some pages carry stones of hardships
contradicted by the tango of light – romance and love
It is me – Inked in a tattoo of words
history captured on brittle paper
someday my daughter will breathe
the words of memories that I lived
A box of treasures
A little piece of me
From beginning to end
