Backyard

I buried you in the grave

Yet I still can see

you in the yard

Where we played

and had family

The swings we there

red and green

with its

sledding board

its edge

pointed in

that cut

my foot

when I slid down

I buried in the grave

But I’ll never forget

the hot dogs on the grill

Or the toasted marshmallows

Yet I can still

see you in the yard

As though it was yesterday

I buried you in the grave

But I still have the memory of you

You lay still in my heart as it was yesterday
