A few years ago Susie surprised me with the following poem and I will cherish it forever. Thanks Sis for the memories:
Kisses for Momma
It was a game my sis and I played,
While in bed, right where we laid.
There we waited for that lonesome cry,
Of the whistle on the train, that would soon be by.
When we felt the rumble so close and nearby,
We covered our mouths with our hands and then let them fly.
"Kisses for momma! Kisses for momma"!
We'd both whisper, as soft as can be,
Because Grandma and Poppa were trying to sleep.
Each summer we went, eager to see,
Grandma and Poppa-sweet as could be.
Our days were so fun, full and free,
Cause we could do most, whatever we pleased.
But we still missed momma, especially at night,
And we couldn't wait to turn out the light.
We eagerly waited for the sound of that train,
And sent out our kisses to momma again.
"Kisses for momma, Kisses for Momma"
