Proud Sock
Well worn on hot streets

Proud Sock

Repaired to wear
This was when we didn’t have money for new socks

Proud Sock
My wife darned a sock
That I wore as a mail man
On long hot days in 104 degree heat
With blisters on my feet
Some treasures are measured with dollars
Some defy such simple constructs
What is the worth of a worn out old sock
That I have kept for 58 years
Love and affection are frugal
The cost though small … long ago
The result of tender love and care
Lingers on
Often forgotten by the one
Who worked so hard
To raise a family
Amid tough times
Small treasures
Memories
