My Sweater

March 11, 2010
An old blue sweater,
Torn and ratty,
They can't see,
It's significance to me
It has one hole in it's sleeve
Ok two,
Fine it has three,
Happy?
I don't think it looks that bad personally,
So full of memories,
Though now some are bittersweet,
I could swear if I bury my nose deep,
The scent of my favorite horse, Cassie,
Still lingers in it's threads,
Though she is now lost to me,
I could swear the voices of my friends still ring,
Within the stitching,
Laughs from days gone by
To which I still cling,
I hug it close to me,
Bidding those memories to never leave,
To comfort and bring serenity,
No matter how torn and ratty,
No matter how they may entreat,
I swear my old blue sweater shall never leave me.

Yhnks-i'm very sentimental-even with simple object so that's where this came from-I wore this sweater the 2 best winter of my life so that's why i chose to use it as the topic-plus is VERY soft and blue-my favorite color-so ya'know that just makes it better :)
