The Past

The Past

 

Wrinkled faces

each indentation telling a story

of a time past,

and whimsical dreams.

 

Indentations of tormented moments,

deep thoughts,

and life through squinted eyes.

 

The face once smooth

now holds wrinkles,

it can now cradle and contain

the tears that once flowed.

 

Happiness of birth and sorrow

from death,

driven aches of fear,

and the thrill…

Old Enough

I write about Frank Boyd, not just because he was my grandfather, but primarily because his family was never known by my father.  Frank died in 1960, I was four.  Old enough to remember that I had a grandpa.  Old enough to remember what he looked like.  Old enough to know that we had no relatives from his side of the family.

What have I done that you've said nothing to your children about me.

A letter was written, it's contents never…

Frank Boyd

If my father was Peter, and mother was Parilee wouldn't someone remember me.  

If I had brothers and sisters named Lucy, Henrietta, Annie Lee, twins Mary and Martha, Jessie, Beatrice, Emanuel, Shadrach and Laura, wouldn't they want you to remember me.

If I came from a small place called Waycross, left home, you tell me you wouldn't remember me.  

Wouldn't you want to know about my son, Cecil, and his children.  Particularly the one writing this, Cheri, who won't let you…
