Do you Remember


Do you remember Brother

1971, you were so young

Do remember the choir

Echoing in the empty church

As our grey heroin took her final breaths?

We were all crying brother, wailing

Pleading for her to come back

You screamed

“Someone watch over me”

Do you remember?

Do you remember the silence

the quiet ticking of the clock

counting down the seconds till we’d see her again

Do you remember the moon

It was brighter than ever that night

The Mississippi winter was settling in

And you were cold and alone

Do you remember every morning waiting

Staring out the open window

Watching Snow blanket the solid,dead ground

Do you remember hearing a few sirens

In the distance

Not being concerned, not knowing

Where they were going

Or why

Remember?
