As I walk around

As I walk around our house

it is now so quiet 

as a mouse.


As I walk into your bed room

I can still hear you mommy

singing a hymen or two,

or just being surprised

of all the blankets on your bed

that cover you.



As I step into your shoes

they do not seem to fit me 

like they did you.

while I hear the tune from the 

Price Right show on Tv,

or if it 4 o'clock it's time

to watch Doctor Phil,,,

these were just a few things

in your daily life that seem to

give you a thrill.



As I walk into our bathroom

I see your depends you wore

they are still stacked up

on the floor

ready for you to use once more.

all that medicine you took

and your doctor appointments

written in a book.

are all still just laying there

all I can do is sit and stare.



As I walk in the kitchen

your little table sits there

and your walker stands bare.

As I walk in the living room

your rocking chair

that once creaked as you

rocked back and forth .

This is just some of the things

I will miss about you mommy

wow, now what do I do,

with out you?



As I walk out on the porch

I can still see you and Aunt Tean

and Uncle Harley chatting

while many pictures of you all

I take.

As I look over in betty jean yard

I see her black eyed Susan flowers

you dearly loved have died off

for the winter.

but when they was in bloom

you would go over and stand

and take a picture

Mom you seem to love

living and raising your family

on this land.



As I walk around I am surprised

how fast my life has went after

11 years ago I moved here.

I feel running down my face

a few tears,

Because I am trying to over come

being with out you

with out fear.!

As I walk around our house.
