I Hope These Ghosts Follow Me Forever

Time now for ghosts

who are grand reminders

of the lessons we learned from

our thoughtful mistakes.


They can follow us through our homes

and out the door

and onto the next.


Artificial boundaries do exist 

and the line can be danced around 


I will take them by the hand

(the best I can)

and embrace their wisdom that exists 

somewhere in my head. 

This poem is about: 
My family
Our world
