Same Age - Poem by Theresa Ann Moore

We were playing in the backyard
The sun was shining high in the sky
My family shared the same birthday…
It was weird… don't ask me why

Mommy and Daddy were kids
Daddy looked a lot like me
Grandma was also a child...
Sitting with Mommy having tea

The girls watched us
taking turns pitching
a baseball… trading places
after ten tries at hitting

The girls decided they wanted
to play and take turns too…
We said we were tired
of the game… we were through

The sun began to fade away
as I heard a voice in the distance
'Get up, it's time for school…'
My eyes opened with resistance

It was a strange crazy dream
but it seemed like it was true…
Realizing it wasn't real made me sad
During the night… my little friends grew
