The Invitation - Poem by Arno Le Roux

The Invitation...

What happened to that doll on the shelf?
That one you dressed to look like yourself?
What happened to that report card 'the one'?
That one mom said 'she's a doctor done'?
What happened to those tennis shoes new?
The ones mom said over the tennis court flew?
What happened to those long hair brown?
Those plats mom bragged all over town?
'Dad, you said 'just a quick glance in the paper'
'Dad, you said just getting dressed, so dapper'
'Dad, you said just finishing the last page'
'Dad, you said just a call to make the wage'
That was fifteen years ago but I understand
The things that occupied your busy mind
This time in an envelope again my pride
The man you said yes I can be his bride...
