Roots

I drive past my childhood home
It’s been many years
and I feel like I’ve checked
under my pillow
and found the tooth fairy’s surprise

Dare I knock at the door
Discover
what I thought was a mansion
is more like a doll house
Will the walls recognize me

Will I remember
for a little while
The love that brought me
through my storms
has never gone away

How blessed am I
I’ll say
While countless childrens’ worlds
these days are in shambles
disarray

without even a doll house
to remember
and only memories to forget
