See Me Again


See Me Again

"Ghost Town Treasure"
Was my fav'rite book
You'd read it to me
At the end I'd plead
You'd read it again.

The beach! Such pleasure!
A picnic you took
To eat by the sea
At the end I'd plead
You'd take me again.

My birthday that year
Two snowball cupcakes--
Best birthday I've had
'Oh, Thank you!', I'd plead
And you would just grin.

Ghost pillow-case shear
On Halloween days
Paper bag full...sad
At the end I'd plead
You'd take me again.

And ever watchfull
Over years I find
Your face...mine...one look
At the end I plead
'Mom! See Me again!'

Times' hands did Not pull
My face to your mind
Or reading my book...
At the end I plead
And you just grin.

    Beautiful piece. I did not lost my mother to ALZ, but to suicide as a child. I was the one who found her so I know the pains of losing one's mother. Please read my Mother, Missing You, Mother and These Tears Weren't Meant For Me.
