We watch the photos together
A rare evening of comfort and quiet
Mingled with laughter
Pages rustle, the fireplace crackles bright
Spasms of giggles overtake my little squirt
At this rapid ride into the past
On Santa’s lap - wearing older brother’s shirt,
Little too spacious on her, in it she is lost.
The older one, my little son
Recalls a rare tantrum
When he, forever the neutral one
Had hurled a sticky dumdum
I clench tighter on to this memory
That seemed to want to burst through
And an insistent me
I know, will hold on tight, like super-glue
In days to come, recall the comfort
Of this day and imagine it true
The human mind – an enigma of a sort
It can make a presence of a memory too
Into a wonderful present
To be cherished, to be you.
