I remember the smell of cookies
and the fizz of an opening coke.
I remember you were my shelter
as well as my inside joke.
I remember the pop
as the ball hit my mitt
and I remember the days
where we just shot the shit.
I remember the shuffle
and the doling of cards
and I remember the sun
as we mowed the yard.
Me recuerdo los libros
y los cuentos extraños.
Me recuerdo la risa
y los “feliz cumpleaños!”
Still to this day,
I think fondly of you
and how you changed my world
and made me who I am too.
