Out of the blue, I missed you two,
Today on my usual drive.
Forty years, a thousand miles ago,
Only my memories now, still alive.
You welcomed me into the country,
Taught me all phases of tilling the land…
I learned to appreciate hardships,
The more simple the life, the more grand.
We readily exchanged our parents,
Horses, kids, ponds of fish and shared hay;
I gave up your adobe for waterfront,
Still I miss you the most each day.
