The Black Jelly Baby


To buy those sweets, was a big mistake.
I try to eat them, but my heart does ache.
I should have known, that'd be the case.
As the tears slowly trickle down my face.
As my Mum loved her Jelly Baby sweets.
With Cadburys Fudge, her favourite treats!
Mum always preferred Sainsbury's brand. 
I can just see her now, Jelly Baby in hand!
I've ate the red one Mum, yellow one too.
But as ever, the black one, I'll save for you!


(it was around this time last year my Mum became very poorly before passing away, so I suppose that's why little things like this make me a bit over emotional)

I know the feeling, those little things, for example the smells sights and sounds around town.
