call me sentimental

but i love old historic things


pieces of tangible memories

the story they all tell

i collect these precious things

they call it trash

old things share their stories

like a wilted flower

compared to a bouquet of freshly picked daisies

an old watch or a hair ornament

a card or a pencil

these objects

the past they all share

like old churches and vases

to antique lamps and heirlooms

they all fascinate me

like history itself

a tangible memory from the distant past
