Love is repaid by Love alone


an officer’s badge

a square of his girl’s little blankie

a private note from his daughter the nun

a ’98 world series yankee cap, army pen

and rosary beads

a lover’s ring that held laughter and heartache

in the hollow parts

pictures and drawings from his youngest grand daughters

one said he’s flying with wings

high school graduation pics from the collegebound girl

a penn state button on his lapel

a string from grandson’s viola, it plays sweet melodies

a season opener ticket, yankees vs. toronto blue jays

one silver moon/star earring and my favorite picture of us laughing

you hold it for me daddy, i’ll be coming for it soon

one baseball card of his youngest son, awesome lefty pitcher

and one salute from my faraway man

mommy left the 50th anniversary picture, what a grin you had

she also left red kisses on the inside of your white tee shirt.

you left us love and laughter

and a love for the argument

a strong spirituality

and a hint of mischievousness…
