We were beneath the tree beside our house.
Me in my little pink corvette, you in your yellow prowler.
We were talking big smack, passing licks and clowning around.
Racing each other up and down the street until the sun went down.
Then you stood, and you smiled.
Your hands rose, you began to wave goodbye.
Tears fell and I prepared my plea for you to stay,
You smiled and said “Sister, you did great. Sister, you’ll be fine.”
In an instant you faded,
And I awoke,
Happy for the dream of a last moment,
Yet saddened there’ll be no more real.

I’ll love you always, Baby Boy.
