Memories of you

When I close my eyes
I'm thinking of you
You enter my mind
And the memories flood through
Slight of build
Soft blow away hair
20 silk cut purple
Sitting in the kitchen on your chair
Phone on the table
Club orange in a glass
Handbag in front of you
These memories don't pass
Sitting & waiting
For a visit or call
How you filled up our lives
For someone so small
On passing you by
You'd throw me a smile
I'd sit down opposite
With you for a while
You take out a cigarette
And lean to the right
Into your bag
To get a light
You talk of your day
And where you have been
Of a nurse or a doctor
That you had seen
Yet you never forget
To ask about me
Of how I am feeling
And my family
Don't realize what you have
'Till it's lost or gone
But in my heart & my mind
You will always live on

by Sean McParland
