"Be who you are and say what you feel because those who mind don't matter and those who matter don't mind"
-Dr. Seuss


I saw you there
smiling, bright
Among the fir trees
in shifting light
And after that
o'er every day
We'd meet up there
an' romp an' play
And then on later
when Sun'd cease
We'd sit on your porch
quiet, in peace
And I'd hold your hand
an' say your name
And you'd smile an' giggle
again an' again
Then, like a phantom,
you were gone
Left nothing behind 'cept
a cold gray stone
With your pretty name
and the day of your birth
To show where you lay
beneath the cold earth
And reminding me that
in shifting light
Among the fir trees
smiling, bright
I saw you there
