Heart and All

Do you still set a place for them At the dining table at day’s end Handily polishing their knife and fork And make with them the usual small talk Do you leave their bed turned down After putting on their favourite sounds All those things they used to do Bring a smile or a tear to you But those were different days past When you thought that it would last And the things that you now recall Keep them alive in your heart and all. © Paul Warren Poetry
