I Remember - Poem by Melvina Germain

When the morning wind floriously blew, I gazed out my window remembering you.

A smile etched softly upon my face when images so blatantly came to mind. I remember so many things, from a winter's day to the first day of spring.

Lonely nights on an indigo highway, I'm sure you remember it too. I was the voice that kept you awake and yes my sweet we made it through.

O the spicey aroma permeating the air trickled through our home and you, well you were happy in your own little space cooking a heck of a meal to delight everyone's taste.

So I'll spend the rest of my day remembering and only good thoughts will come to mind...while remembering perhaps a touch on the shoulder, a whisper in my ear or a chuckle teasing me from behind.

May your spirit rest long upon my soul as I close my eyes perhaps you'll come to me. O When I feel that intense warmth surge through my body, I'll know your spirit found me here. O I'll weep, you know I'll weep but my tears will soon disappear. Thanks be to my Father in Heaven once more, your heartprint I'll always wear.
