My Memory Of You
Poetry by Marla Deaton
Dedicated to a friend of my youth
Audio Produced by Mark Edgemon
Narrated by Annette Morrison

I use to call you Sue
And now I know
I still love you.

We use to sit on your bed and talk
Of what we thought we would be
As if by wanting
We could make it so.

I don’t know
What became of you
And still wonder what of me?

I just remembered
I still love you
And that will always be

You went your way
And I went mine
But if I could go back in time…

I’d sit on your bed
And say “Even when we’re old…
To me, you’ll still be Sue.
