I Remember


I remember riding my tricycle
I remember his face as
it became frozen in its place
I remember the car that came around the corner with
the rims that shined on my face
I remember my father holding me
but this time he was not scolding me
I remember him saying
I love you and your mother too
I remember running away it was all
I knew how to do
I remember standing on the corner like
I was told to do I remember bullets flying
past my face from those people trying to take my place
I remember, I remember, I remember
