Still Savouring These - Poem by Margaret Alice Second

Came home in a frozen state, my son's gift to me
a waffle bought from Nathan, Tiaan accompanied
me, shared the meal of strawberries and cream on
the best waffle base ever seen, with a dash of
chocolate sauce and ice-cream

My heart melted by my son's sweet deed, Nici gave
me special chocolate, suddenly I felt at home in my
own life and world, the final treat was to reread ‘The
Time Thief'; two of my favourite books, Lobsang
Rampa and James Bond

Brought together in one tale that sings; laying with
my head in your lap, the dog behind my back I am
in heaven, however difficult it had been to create
this small world, saying no to all other options,
the pain of leaving everything

That could take me away from this, completely gone;
safely arrived in my own life without regret, nothing I
left can compare to this - the love of my family, twin
sis and lovely colleagues; Hanlie with her sunshine,
June with her impishness

Hermien the calm organiser; you stroking my back
while making plans for another seaside holiday, a
heady mix of books and life warming my heart
and soul - I'm still savouring these
