Sitting Here Thinking Of…..

Arghh….this challenge is catching up with me.  The show doesn’t end until Wednesday, so I really don’t have as much time as I would like to participate…  Today is day 16….I will make another post today.  This is a poem that I wrote about a woman is recalling various scenes from her life as a young married.  I hope that you enjoy it.

Sometimes when I lie in the bed alone
Imagining you beside me
Like you used to be
And still catching a whiff of paco rabonne cologne on
Your pillow brings

And somehow I still feel you
Tugging at the quilt
Tickling my feet and telling
Me that the blueberry waffles that
You made were going fast
So it was now or never

I still remember our solitary
Away from the kids
Thinking about blessings
Never dreamt of
Just a short time ago
I see the brush on the dresser
Once so lovingly used as
You’d call me to you
To gently stroke my

You never complained about
Massaging my feet
And that twinkle in your eye promised
You knew more than one
Way to curl my toes
Now I’m alone with our
In my twilight years
But, happy
In knowing that your
strength survives in
Our grandchildren’s eyes.
