    the story behind old clothes

    There lies a piece of old cloth
    under the mattress-
    "mother, throw it away!
    It's old and faded
    and we have newer clothes."

    She replied kindly-
    "No.
    Son, this was gifted
    by your grandma as her memory."

    My heart slowly sank
    deeper than the deepest sea
