Forever Playing…


Forever Playing…

By: JP Leddy

Albums full of  smiles of  wide eyed babies…

Fill my Sunday afternoons sipping wine…

Laughter is the sound track in my mind…

As memories of my little ones wrap around my heart…

Where “Daddy”  was the sweetest song that greeted me…

With little hands that grabbed mine with excited glee…

Asking for piggy back rides and to be swung around…

The forever playing newsreel in my happy brain…

Those little voices no longer resound  replaced by older ones…

Children morphed into grown adults with less laughter…

Life squeezing the play and the Daddy out of them…

Assigning them to the past,  and alive only in remembrance….

…If only innocence could be regrown

I also gladly accept the Celebrate Poet of Summer Award and thank all those who nominated me.   Thank you, Jingle for giving me as well as others a community to share our poetry.
