Timeless tunes

Tinkle and totter

As memories - mumble,

Shake and shuffle

Spinning in your eyes

You are

A teller

A keeper

A mentor

A light

A mother

Seemingly small

Unaltering or uneventful

Importance quivering on

the edge of subjectivity

But leave time astray,

Whining and wriggling

He is just a number, an illusion

He may follow,

Perpetually, plentifully

But YOU are the guide.


Alice Bellan
