my mother’s dress


a year ago i took this dress out of my closet but ‘you’re still too skinny to wear this’ my mom said, so i placed it back and forgot about it; tucked behind the twenty++ dresses i already have. a week ago i rummaged through my closet thinking ‘i always wear the same dresses’ and then i found this again, put it on and walked out to the living room asking ‘so can i wear this now?’ my mom said yes and then my dad walked pass saying ‘hey this is nice’

she told me ‘i kept this dress after only wearing it once, knowing that one day i would save it for my daughter to wear’
