Papa’s World – IF I COULD TURN BACK TIME !

It was dark – only the street lights were on – cold wind – we were bundled up

We started our walk down the street – I was 9 – my brother 5.

It was a cold Winter day – pre dawn –

and we walked behind my mother.

You – see – my parents both worked –

my dad had already left for the oil fields

My Mom – she would be picked up by Oscar and Glady’s in twenty minutes

We – in turn –

would walk to my sister’s apartment –

Where we would lay back down and sleep until breakfast !

So it went – those early years –

my sister and brother in law –

lived a few houses away .

Bill – Donna – Tom

If I could turn back time –

I would love to see them again.

She was the kindest person you could ever meet –

And Bill ( Willy ) –

one of the funniest men you would ever know.

After my grand ma passed away –

it was Donna who watched over me.

She was fifth teen years older than I –

I wanted to be where ever they were.

This was Donna –

always seeing both sides

and understanding .

Bill – was a meat cutter –

truck driver –

police chief and Mayor !

He also played first base on our town team base ball squad.

That is where I first remember him –

as my dad was the manager.

He was fair in what ever he did –

all my friends –

could of been in trouble –

But he wisely led them straight .

He has a nick name for every one of us –

except me –

he called me Tommy –

which endeared me to him.

My gratitude to the both of them is endless –

Both – were always there for me –

Many times –

in H.S. she would talk with me –

( She cut my hair until I was in my twenties )

As would Bill –

It was a small town –

everyone knew your name –

If I could turn back time for just one day –

They all are in heaven now –

I am the last –

But –

The abundance of life comes through the love they gave me –

If I could turn back time –

Just one more hug –

one more smile –

EVERY ONE HAS A STORY

Today –

this is my story –

my thought –

IF I COULD TURN BACK TIME
