If people can be remembered after their lives pass on,
Could a smile be remembered, even after joy is gone?
Then there was the Ranga
They’d yack on the verandah
“Are you angry at me?” he asked. “Do you feel the same about me?” He closed his eyes and whispered, “Say something.”
I knew you as my sister, sometimes even a friend
When I found out you’re my mother, it all came to an end.
