I Remember - Poem by Manonton Dalan

street lights are still lit up
as she fills my coffee cup
with same greeting everyday
"how's your mom doing today? "
with a simple grin and "okay, "
she hands me bagle and jelly

pinching coins from my pocket
dropping a quarter on the carpet
i lean back to see where it lands
rub my back on somebody's hands
"excuse me, may i help you please? "
i turn around my lips is on her face

i blush, i feel my heart pounds
i touch her arm; whisper sorry
she waves her hand; smiles at me
yes, i give a last quick look at her
she's so pretty i could remember

    by god she left no lips stick
    i can't believe

    your tongue must have been glued
    at once

    A tender and gentle poem, almost timid, made me smile within. Felt like I was sitting and watching the whole scene while it was happening. Great poem, thank you. RoseAnn (Report) Reply
