Years From Now

YEARS FROM now, I wouldn’t remember how you walk, how you run.

I wouldn’t remember how you drink, how you eat.

Years from now I wouldn’t remember how you played with us, how you scratch your ears.

I wouldn’t remember how you sometimes peed in our bed, how you chase people entering our house.

Years from now I wouldn’t remember how you bark at people, how you run out of the house letting us chase you.

I wouldn’t remember how you lick our faces, how you waited for your little pieces of bread.

Years from now I wouldn’t remember how you ate ham every New Year’s Eve. I wouldn’t remember how you hated chicken.

Years from now I may forget all about the things you did or didn’t do..

But years from now, I will always remember you. I will always remember how a Deirdre walked in our life and made a big change.

Years from now I might forget all about the things you did or didn’t do.

But years from now I will always remember that you love and protected us. I will always remember a Deirdre who unquestionably gave us love and happiness.

Years from now I will never forget how I found a friend and a family in you Didie.
