Friday's " Show and Tell "

When my Father was in the navy during World War II, he sent this pillow case to my Mom. I'm guessing that was around 1943.
Recently, She gave me a few mementos that she had saved for so many years. This was one of them. For quite some time it was framed and hung above their bed.















The verse reads:
SWEETHEART
I thought that you would like to know,
That someone's thoughts go where you go,
That someone never will forget,
The hours we spent since we met.
That life is richer, sweeter far,
For such a sweetheart as you are,
And now my constant prayer will be,
That God may keep you safe for me.

I remember when I was a little girl, reading this every time I was in their room until I had it memorized and I thought it was the most romantic poem I had ever heard.

Stop on over at Kelli's house for more Show and tell, and have a good weekend!
