Night Shadow

I know you wonder if I think of you
You still sneak through shadows of my mind
I only wish you health and kindness
You are a crease of my heart
In a measure of rhymes

Time with you was mirth and laughter
These words too short and memories long
Rich pages of life still to be written
Through the infinite madness
Of our infamous right and wrong

Over and again I see glimpses of you
In joy and gladness of our son
He has the best of all of us
In a line up of ancestry
North and South melded into one

Funny how life changes shape
History just keeps marching on
Mystery beside memory grows deeper
Marvel and love
Are what keep them going
