disjointed memories

Written by: Anthony Slausen

happy (dead) mothers day
a fistfull of flowers for your resting place 
didn't have time to know you
you were far swifter than your time,
just a few clips from an ancient reel
my your smile was sweet and wide
don't feel much anymore
time is fond of sweeping 
heart and mind
 under the floorboards

a piggyback ride
a cat named blue
a silver music box
is all there is of us
