Beneath a Blanket of Lavender and Lace

Beneath a satin soft blanket of lavender and lace
She sleeps - Peaceful
The sweet floral fragrance
Comforts her
Many years have passed
History shows its age
In her snow white hair 
And pale wrinkled skin
Family they built
Joy's they shared
Challenges they faced
Just fading memories now
He sits by her bedside
Tells her a story
A camping trip they took
Games they played
Friends long departed
A faint smile on her lips
Maybe she remembers
Cherishing these moments
He knows
Soon to be gone
