Things That Remind Me of You



Tea and cookies. Peanut M&M's out of a gumball machine. Hide and seek. Your tractor. Your old brown truck. Your little white truck. Driving way too fast. Watching Survivor together. No elbows on the table. Your cute worn in jeans. Velcro shoes. Plaid shirts. Your chair. Milk for dinner. Kentucky Fried Chicken. Wednesday dinners. Snacks after school. Puzzles. Graduations. Birthdays. The month of May. Thanksgiving lunch. The day before Thanksgiving. Putting air in my tires. Bench sitting. Greeting at the door. Closing the gate. Watching the news. Your office. Yelling at Whitney for raising the bed. Your rough hands. Your combed back grey hair. Mints. Your jokes. Your teeth. Walking under the trees. Acorns. Teaching me how to ride a bike. My wedding day. Meeting your great granddaughter for the first time.

Things that remind me of you.


I love you, Poppie.
We'll see you again one day.
