return to me

return to me (for my Schuyler)

In a flash I’ve found
that you went from tugging at my side
to skipping through the school playground
With your big doe eyes
and your smile that outshines the sun

In time I am sure
your life will stretch you beyond
the map that surrounds me
and take you away from this place

Stop back and visit
let me tell you of all the things
you won’t remember
but I will never forget

In a flash I’ve found
that my love for you is home
A mother’s heart holds all the love
a daughter needs forever

Skip or run
drive or fly
return to me
in a flash of time.
