I REMEMBER

I remember this day forty five years ago
I remember that it was a rainy rainy Friday
I remember how we ran half clothed then
I remember we were sliding and bathing
I remember the chill from the heavy rain
I remember too that Mama was absent
I remember she was taken to the hospital
I remember the semi freedom the house had
I remember the older ones having fun too
The Brand New Baby Boy

I remember the Volkswagen pickup coming
I remember it was with the hazard lights on
I remember the soft candor that engulfed him
I remember he told us that Mama had a boy
I remember the cheer that broke across his face
I remember he was not vex at all that day at us
I remember the brown or blue higher height suit
I remember the glasses case and pocket book
I remember the happy news he shared with us
The Brand New Baby Boy

I remember Mama holding this bundle of joy
I remember how I held the new wrapped baby
I remember they thought I was too young to hold
I remember it was the first baby I had known
I remember I hugged him tight as if I owned him
I remember he was called ‘Shoe’ a favorite name
I remember he had huge wisdom like a patriarch
I remember that he spoke and men were awed
I remember he was destined to be a human link
The Brand New Baby Boy
