Today I am thinking about
a brown-eyed little boy –
born 53 years ago today –
Who would he have been as an adult?
I only knew him for a short 2 1/2 years
too little time to really know . . .
I remember eyes sparkling with life,
full of mischief.
I think he would have been
more tall than short . . .
still have his brown eyes
and brown hair . . .
And we’d call him Ron, instead of Ronnie!
I miss him on days like today –
I imagine he and Gordon are “playing” together once again.
Someday I will “play” with them too.
Feeling tender, a little sad, and happy that I had him in my life!
And grateful for the love of friends who have become like family to me!!
