My memory
is haunting me
though it is so sweet.

I see it now
in a kitchen somehow
in a soft glow of yellow
and you so tall
and me so small.

I stood on your shoes
and you danced back and forth
I remember still.

Who you were
I do not know
I see no face
I was so small.

Looking up to you
I see no face
but feel your warmth
for one so small.

There is no one alive to tell
of our sweet interlude
You and me
You so tall
I was so small.

Dancing back and forth
on your black shoes
you were so kind
do you mind
if I remember you
and wonder who?

Were you my Father
or a Friend?
There is no end
to this memory of you.

Thank you for being so kind
to this small child.
Maybe I begged, maybe I cried
but this I know
you were there
holding me gently
as I stood on your shoes
and laughed and giggled.

My Mother laughed
and so did you
I was so very happy
with both of you.

With no complaint
you took us on a sweet dance
Is there a chance
I could ever thank you?

Sometimes those wonderful nostalic memories that glance back into our past are so special because we don't remember the details. this I believe is a perfect example of that.
