Day 12

I remember them

Written by Ronnie Mackintosh

I’m losing things; people, places, bits of me.
So when they come, they show me snaps,
and the sad-eyed woman
says, Remember
when ...

She lays down pictures; cheerful girls,
in muddy boots. I smile at the faces,
and those boots, and I do
recall ... something.

They’re all me, the sad-eyed
woman says, pointing at
the girls.

Me, growing up,
Mum.
