The Ribbon

by peculiar2011

I was at home, my baby and I. I was trying to open the old safe my mother had. It was given to me after she left. There was a padlock on it. I had a drawer with some old keys in it. I tried all the keys until one worked. I opened the safe; there were 3 things in it. First, a picture of my mom holding me, and she had a colorful ribbon wrap around her neck. I noticed it because of all the colors that were in it. Second, I saw the ribbon wrapped like a bow. It was beautiful. I put it in her granddaughter's hair. Third, and finally, there was a handwritten note. She wrote of a time past, of frozen memories. It seemed like it was yesterday when she was holding me in her arms. Where does the Time go?
