You Love Me Best
When will we be together again?
Will the sun shine with skies of blue?
Some days, the clouds roll past my windows
But the home of my childhood shines clear.
The songs I knew in my youth ring true.
Do I still remember me and.... you?
My favorite pet's name and my first car
The miles I traveled in my early years.
The dear souls I've met and places I've seen.
Where is the bathroom.... and you are?
The last thing I ate was what?.... when?
Right foot, left foot, I try to tell them to 'do'.
Please, tell me again; I like you, you're who?
The learning to walk again is so new.
Us kids rode bikes where ever we went.
Where are the birds of spring? The warm summer sun?
I'm tired. I'm cold; hold me close, let me rest.
Yes, I know you. You love me the best.
When we are together again,
The sun will shine under skies of blue,
Until then, remember me, while I remember you.
I am so touched. My friend and I have reconnected via letters at Christmas and she wrote this poem after reading about Momma. She's always been a great writer and I'm proud that she has such a wonderful warm attitude, even with some rather large heartaches along the way.
Momma had a fairly normal week. A normal week for us is pretty crazy these days, but we are grateful. The weather is warming a bit and Momma is happily reading Easter and Birthday greetings over again today. She thinks I'm her Momma or her Sister Alice or Sister in Law Lena. No matter, she's happy about it.
Hats off to you, Gram, Alice and Lena! And when we meet again, under skies of blue, you'll remember me, and I'll remember you.
