#30 - A Perfect Day

Julia Jedynak 1955 (Detroit)

You are back
A perfect day
Sun shining
Eyes glowing
Smiles

Hard working
Meal cooking
Smells good
Laughs abound
Lovely sound

Want to remember
Sitting with you
Playing with food
Watching you eat
Hearing you speak

It was really good,
All of it, all of it,
Really, really good

Remember the scene
Play it back
Again and again
As much as you can

Life is short
Good times rare
Cherish forever
You, me – then, there
