Tied with Lace

Old things are more beautiful
than many things brand new
because they bring fond memories
of things we used to do.

Old photographs in albums,
love letters tied with lace,
Recapture those old feelings
that new ones can't replace.

The author's comments:
This poem was inspired by my grandmother holding a picture of my grandfather and her when they were younger.

I totally agree with your second stanza. My fondest memories can never be replaced. They are priceless.
