Perfume Memory

img_3001via Daily Prompt: Scent

My mother left home when I was ten

I often think back to then

She ran away for a fresh start

Leaving us kids with a broken heart


The days slowed down, but I don’t recall

Anything else that summer at all

Except oft smelling, in tearful lament

A dress, because, it held her scent
