Sally Valentine


You’ve been to Focus-Do It All

You’ve browsed at B&Q

You’ve gone through Mum’s house room by room

Found lots and lots to do.


You’ve emptied cupboards, drawers and shelves

Plus boxes, tins and bowls

Discovered treasures lost in time

And linen full of holes.


You’ve dusted, scrubbed and polished

Put varnish coats on doors

Even got a parking fine

While sorting out Mum’s floors.


It’s no wonder that you’re shattered

But thank the Lord not stressed

No wonder that you fall asleep

Before you get undressed.


I think I’ve told you this before

When toasting us in wine

I love you more and more each day

My Sally Valentine.
