A snake of ribbon slithers down

Crushed fabric nearly white,

Yellow time has spent its ways

Upon her wedding night.

The dress that was once stuffed and gone

Recovered from the dark,

Of closet where its memory

Was left from making mark.

Still, now with its sweet owner not

But name upon a stone,

A child sits upon the ground

Yet never is alone.

Her hair is downy, fluffy white

Her cheeks are rosy red,

Lovely child settles in

For nap upon the bed.

Close her eyes and view the dream

of warm and sunny day,

With the dead alive again

Play a game, they may.

All the nightmares gone at last

Left from what she sees,

And Grandma now beside her life

With all the memories
