You know who YOU are

I was in Madison and I thought of you.
I found a jar of Carmex in my bag and I thought of you.
I made mac’n’cheese and I thought of you.
I saw a red convertible Mustang and I thought of you.
I heard a commercial for 1-800-Kars-4-Kids and I thought of you.

I ate half a batch of raw cookie dough and it reminded me of you.
I passed a house that had been TP’d and it reminded me of you.
I saw a bag of water balloons on sale and it reminded me of you.
I got carded (!) and it reminded me of you.
I went to Panera and it reminded me of you.

I sipped a Spotted Cow and I thought of you.
I walked along the nature trail and I thought of you.
I saw a monkey and I thought of you.
I went to Taco Bell and I thought of you.
I sent a package in the mail and I thought of you.

I picked lilacs and put them in the vase you gave me.
I sat by the fireplace and read a book you recommended.
I made dinner with your Mother’s recipe.
I wore the t-shirt you made me.
I lit the candle you bought me and now you are my favorite scent.

I heard The Who on the radio and I thought of you.
I heard Andy Gibb on the radio, and I thought of you.
I heard Rick James on the radio and I thought of you.
I heard Tom Petty on the radio and I thought of you.
I heard John Denver on the radio, and I missed you.

Memories of you surround me.
Even when we don’t talk or see each other, you are very much a part of my life.
And I thank you.

My life is good.

About Mary Fran Says

I am an artist, crafter, designer and writer. I enjoy working with mixed media-- applying visual and tactile manipulations to telling a story. Not a lot of market for that, though, :), so I'm focusing on short story submissions and novel completions. Yes, plural. Lots of beginnings, too many ideas, not enough focus.
