IrreplaceableShe was irreplaceable, but I didn't know what I had till it was gone. My father told me her health had began to decline again, but I pushed it all out of my mind. I went on daily just imagining she would just get better like before. I told myself she would get better day after day, but as things took a turn for the worse I knew it was time for her to leave me. I knew no matter how much I would cry and say that I wasn't ready, I would have to face what was to come.
So when the time came, all I could do was listen to her words. It would be the last I would hear of her voice, so all I could do was hold onto it's sound and sit in the misery of it all. As the rest of family prayed silently and sobbed, I watched her hand come closer to mine. It held a gold locket and she told me to take it as she knew her time was drawing near. I shook my head doing my best not to cry in front of her. I looked at the locket in a daze as time seem to slow.
Then in slow motion I watched the locket slip from her hand and her eyes close. My hand reached for hers hoping she would reach back, but I looked into her face to see a peaceful expression I had never seen before and I knew she was gone.
So my mother's locket is the only material thing I would ever treasure. It may just be a locket to someone else, but it's what keeps her in my memories. It's the only thing I have left of her, because the real treasure can never be replaced.
Like I said before, it's best to do something you know and in this case I went with something slightly personal. Well at first I was going do something sparkly and magical again, but I stopped myself. lol My game froze actually in midst of it, so maybe that was a sign. Anyway, I wanted to do something a little more meaningful and touching. Then I thought about my mom and it just turned into this. I don't know how or why, but it did. I also don't know why I was thinking about my mom, but I guess it's bound to happen occasionally. I'm just thankful it doesn't make me depress like it use to. It actually made me feel peaceful kind of thinking of her. As for the comp entry itself, I feel like I redeem myself a bit. It's not only pretty (I hope), but it has meaning. :)
