A candle on her favorite food
Lit on this her 10th year passing
I sit and wonder in the quiet moment
No birthday song to wish a lasting
Wishes for the future gone
As the days have passed quickly
And you are not here to belong
At this table of celebration
Yet it is for you and only you
Leaving loved ones with their own

I was the one who they called the knee baby.
Not sure why , I am the one in the cap,
I stood as tall as the rest of my siblings.
I always had an impish smile; they said.
Worn out pants handed down by someone.
I never knew we were not rich.
My Grandparents never ‘let on.’

One tree this year.
A time to remember.
We miss our loved ones
In this Covid December .
We will not forget
We are still in hope.
While many have lost
and now have to cope.
We light the candles
We cut the cake.
Pray for the lost,
different memories we make.

The little goblins have left their mark
their ghastly decor glows in the dark
They are prepared for the spooky nights,
witches and ghost and lots of frights.
The purple haze glows all about,
cider brews until it is stout
Soon the long waiting will abate
days grow shorter, darkness stays late.
So walk among the Halloween’s play
Come and see but do not stay.
It is meant to make you scared
for all the ‘trick or treats’ who dare.

Tom Sawyer would be proud
Of the curiosity he shows
His wonder and discovery
A small rock he throws
Standing an looking
He thinks once more,
To collect another rock and
throws off to distant shore.
Dedicated to my Grandson

Her faithful wish each day
her green socks and pink sparkle shoes
Would always stay
On her feet looking down
She would see magic in her green socks
And sparkles all around
Her Mom would ask
Let’s take the shoes off for a while
It will help them last
The Princess looked away
Very surprised and shook her head
” no, thank you , not today”

A wakeful glimpse
Into darkness that helps us
See past into the light
