Make No Mistake

Holey sweaters, once whole
10-year-old lipstick, once bold
Make no mistake,
what is theirs will be yours.

Fuzz covered coverlet, once clean
Faded pajamas, once teal
Ownership lasts
not much longer than life.

Costume jewelry, once bright
Family photographs, once nigh
Make no mistake,
What is yours will be theirs.
