a promise

she always wanted this pinkie ring
a promise made a long time ago

given to me when i was her age
loved and worn for many years

the gold came from her grandfather's
masonic ring
melted down
producing identical three

gifted to me by my darling
lived in daily

now it's her turn
a promise kept
happy birthday dear laurel
happy birthday to you

You have so many traditions and intentional moments.

And that photo is divine.
