The Last Night

She didn’t hear the noises
or see the fireworks
just reminisced
going to New York
watching the ball drop as the count-down
took all her attention
that year.

She smiled
as she remembered the children
banging the pots and pans
they had removed from her cupboards.
Her grandchildren…
hers.

A good life
full of travel
enjoyment.

Sorrows
everyone has those.

Blessings…
staring you right in the face.
I don’t think I will be going on any more trips,
she said with a slight wispy stare.
I think I went by myself that year.
It was the same year I went into the Copa Cobana…
just to see what it looked like.

Boy, did she travel…

Memory loss? Is it lost ? It finds a way to reveal the heart, I believe.
