I bought a little book decades ago and wrote this on the first page and presented it to my Mother on her Birthday.
...I asked her to occasionally write some words of wisdom in it and later when filled to give it back to me on one of my birthdays...WHY?
...so when she is gone (passed away), I could open it and see her writing to me and speak to me, and I would feel her around me.....and so she did.
...It was not totally filled when she passed away, but the pages she did write in (just for me) has been lasting me my lifetime while I am alive. She even glued in a few of her favorite photo's inside
I have thousands of books here in my Library and love them all...but this little book is my fave
“LEAVE ME SOME WORDS”
Enter my page and leave me some words
So my world will be easier to bare
Engrave beauty and love on a page or two
Or a mystic Novella ~ if you dare
I will caress and protect
Your thoughts in my land
For I know they were born
From your heart, through your hand
Your dreams and your journeys
Whether lived or pretend
Are immortalized on my page
By your pen-©Sheila Wolk
I was named Sport Artist of the Year in 1987. American Sport Art Museum and Archives (ASAMA) gave this auspicious award to my soft-edged pastel paintings of the hard action sports .
