A New Year's Sentiment...

Dear friends of ours kept this sentiment on the wall 
of their old stone house... up in Addison, Vermont. 
Before moving down here to South Jersey,
I hastily penciled the words on a piece of paper;
knowing that one day I would want them to hang on our wall! 
We picked up this worn cupboard panel two years ago,
on one of our jaunts to Lancaster County.
I photocopied the words on manila card-stock,
then coffee stained them... added a primitive fabric heart,
and a nice vintage key... all held together with rusty wire!
It reads:

There is a place that we call memory.  
A province by itself, which though unseen... 
is home and haven to the heart. 
And there, in peace and beauty waiting... 
are those with whom we shared our yesterdays.
