The keychain hung from the hook
On the wall next to the jacket rack
Worn and torn as it was always with her;
Sparkling of favorite colors in the right light of silver and blue;
Though showing signs of use and age.
A niece who be-gifted for Christmas
Heartfelt reminders of family all in a mermaid’s tale;
Those we cherished and how we are always together;
In small of ways even when we are apart.
