Sissy Made Me Cry



Mommy,

Sissy made me cry tonight, I don't think she meant to.

I was just sitting here going thru some web sites and I thought I would look at Sissy's pages.

I was enjoying her pages and then I came upon her poems page.

They were very good and I kept reading them. I read the one about the things she loved and I read the one about Colorado.

But Mommy, Sissy made me cry when she told about the old barn being gone.

She made me cry when she said that our house, the trees and flowers were gone.

Mommy, is it really true?
Are they really all gone?
Has it really been that long?

I know a lot of things have happend since you have been gone.

I got married, can you believe that some call me a woman? I still feel like a child when I think of you.

I remember when I last saw you, I was only sixteen.

I told you to be good and you said "You Too".

Well I think you would be proud of me because I have been good.

I've raised a family and I think I did well.

They are two young men that I would be proud for you to know.

Yes, Sissy made me cry tonight and I'm glad she did.

I will have to call her tomorrow and say thanks.


Love Sheila

Just Over The Hill

Written For My Grandaughter, Lisa Christine



Just over the hill a little bit

That is where I'm going

I don't want you to go with me

But I want you to know where I'll be

Just over the hill a little bit

I'm going to see the past

But I want you to stay here so I'll know my way back

Just over the hill a little bit

Don't think that I'm crazy because I am not

I just want to see something that I think I forgot

No, you can not go because you were never there

Just over the hill a little bit

Then everything will be clear

Yes, I thought so

I am so glad that I went back

Just over the hill a little bit

I saw your great grandma and then I knew for sure

You have the same twinkle in your eye

Just over the hill a little bit

She had the same twinkle
as she was pretending to eat my mud pie

Just over the hill a little bit
