I remember love like yours

I remember love like yours
for all of my life
your tenderness and care
unconditional

pansies grown in the garden
for the breakfast table
fresh strawberries
and wild blueberries

I remember love like yours
and look for it in all I do
in the eyes of those around me
in my fingertips
and heart

digging down into the depths
arms of steel and stone
to tend the leaves
and sprouts
your laughter ringing out
to us all

I remember love like yours
after all of these years
you are never far from me
scent of baking bread
and homemade jam
hands as wide as dinner plates
holding me up to watch the world
perched on your shoulder

I remember love like yours
for always.
