Memories On Your Birthday - Poem by Linda Ori

You taught me how to bake a cake
So many years ago,
You took me swimming in the lake
And walking in the snow;
We went to watch 'The Black Hand'
And 'Wake of the Red Witch', too -
I don't remember many things
I couldn't make you do;
You used to put my hair up
In pins to make it curl,
So many hours I spent with you
When I was just a girl;
You'd come and play piano
And I loved to hear you play,
Your fingers danced like butterflies
On a lazy summer day;
I loved to eat your sandwiches
Of butter and cream cheese
Whenever I would spend the night
Or picnic 'neath the trees;
You spoke to me of many things
That now I understand -
We wander through 'Green Mansions'
With our spirits hand in hand;
I have so many memories
To last my whole life through,
If anyone has touched my heart
It certainly was you;
I feel we have a special bond
That few will ever know,
And we'll always be together
Wherever the road may go.


Written for my favorite' aunt' five months before she died of a stroke. I had a feeling I wouldn't see her again, and it was true.

    An incredibly moving tribute Linda. Full of warmth and loving detail that brings the sharing of experiences to life. And, as ever, very poetic! xx jim (Report) Reply
