Dreams of happier times


Where are you Mother
as we sit and wait for you
to take your final journey?
do your dreams enfold you
in that far away time
when you were a girl?
a quieter way of life
working at fourteen
still a child but that's
how it was those days.
then a bride smiling
on my father's arm.
raising a family
in rural Norfolk.
I know it wasn't easy
money always short
on a shepherd's wages
workers of the land.
we that sit and wait
pray that the mind
no longer with us
dreams of happier times.
