I remember the summer
You purchased the loom.
And I still have the scarf
You made me that winter.

Your instructions were to wear it
and to not be afraid to wash it.

At first I draped it across
the top of my dresser
the pictures of my friends.

Years later, I put it in a
box full of cards filled
with words of love and pictures
that my kids had drawn.

Now it is neatly folded on
a hanger in my closet
between the clothes I
always wear.

I run my fingers through
the tassels
every once in a while.
Always planning to wear
it next winter.

Always expecting to be
closer to you.
