The Unexpected Visitor
 

 
There is a place all tucked away
and hidden, deep within
where memories, dear to my heart,
come softly stealing in…
an unexpected visitor
with power to turn back time
leads me to the days long passed
when life was more sublime.
I feel the same emotions, still,
the fragrances return,
the love, excitement, joy, and pain
within my heart still burn.
I stand alone in reverie,
nostalgia o’er me flows …
a tear, a smile, a melody,
the happiness and woes.
Dear Grandma, how I’ve missed your smile,
Your understanding way,
The love you gave so easily
Whene’er I’d come to play.
And, Grandpa, how can I forget
the songs you sang to me
while playing on your fiddle
as I perched on your knee.
And, Mama, dear, I treasure,
the hopes and dreams we shared.
and all the crazy shopping trips…
I knew how much you cared.
Daddy, I remember
the fun times every year
at Palisades Amusement Park.
You helped me lose all fear.
And we breathed your cherry pipe smoke
As it curled around your chair…
I coughed for years until I left,
then, only breathed fresh air.
I recall my practice sessions
before I’d dance on stage.
Mom was my greatest critic,
“Believe in yourself,” she’d say.
She always urged me onward
And she taught me how to pray.
I’ll be thankful for my family
until my dying day.
