Day 5

My Angel

Written by Sara Sheridan

© Museum of Childhood, Edinburgh

She watches through tinsel and fairy lights. In the box. Out of the box. Years spent looking down on the feast: stolen mistletoe kisses, spiced wine, the game of charades, the snowstorm. And now older, my brothers and I, our silences; our knowing. We don’t believe in angels any more and soon, she senses, we’ll replace her forever with some bright star.
