The rules were very simple, use all or part of a collage sheet she provided & share by today!
So here is my story of Miss Mary Hayes.
Miss Mary Hayes was secretly in love with a boy who wrote beautiful letters of the heart.
He was very romantic.
Once a week after he was paid, he would pick up a small bouquet of her favorite flowers from the corner shop.
On their 1st anniversary he surprised her by having a charm made from one of the blooms.
She wore it around her neck until the day she died.
Miss Mary kept every trinket he ever gave her.
Little hearts, ribbons that once tied up a pretty package.
And a button that came from the last gown he saw her in.
Their relationship was very complex & veiled in secrecy.
It all came to an end when he left to fight the great war. The last letter Mary received was on July 18, 1919.
Mary never gave up hope that her true love would return one day.
She died alone, with only her memories & some tokens of a love story.
