Images Of The Familiar

I think often of those times in the past,
And how at that time, which so swiftly passed,
Was held in place a space for me to dwell,
In a memory of a moment I remember so well.

And what I recall in the memory I see,
Is that you’ve always been right there with me,
And though you may not recall, I surely do,
For even in this moment I’m remembering you.

As my Father you loved me when you raised your voice and corrected the error in my way,
As my Mother you nurtured my confidence with praise, saying only what a Mother could say,
As my Brother you strengthened my bravery, I knew we were in it together,
As my Sister you gave me laughter, one of the world’s greatest treasures, lasting forever,
As my Friend you never did mind whenever I had something on mine,
As my Lover we shared everything, we were peas-in-a-pod…two-of-one-kind,
As my Daughter you inspired me, to be the man I never thought I could be,
And as my Son you encouraged my heart to believe in the things my eyes have yet to see.


A Note From The Author:

In a single-wide trailer not more than 20 feet away from the cars zooming by on U.S. 41 in Lutz, FL, at about 2:30 in the morning…I thought of you. It wasn’t the first time and it certainly wouldn’t be the last, but that night I felt inspired to write down some of those thoughts so that one day you would know!


Here are some other pics of animals who got caught having a good “Think Sesh”!
