The Stories She Told

The Stories She Told

I was young, and so was she, at one time,

long ago.

The stories she told…

of best friends, and boyfriends,

of all sisters, and later, a brother.

her memories are now a part of mine.

the stories she told…

of drag races, and country drives,

of fast rivers, and serene mountains.

her memories are now a part of mine.

the stories she told…

of playful pets, and dangerous encounters,

of joyful tears, and sad moments.

her memories are now a part of mine.

forever…my mother,

the stories she told…

I add these, to the stories I tell.
