My Nana‘s rocking chair, by Barbara Dean Aliaga 66 years since Nana left It’s in this chair I hold Her love, her laugh, Her hugs, her embrace This chair is my memory place. In Nana’s eyes I could do no wrong, Her smile would broaden, Her eyes twinkle, yes , yes! Her eyes sent bolts of love This chair is my mourning dove. She painted this chair canary yellow, A sunshine message to all To cheer her 6-year old daughter, (Fatherless), after her husband’s passing. This chair is a lesson in surpassing! She rented out two floors of her home. And made long-lasting friends of both. Her laughter came yet also no-nonsense opine. Yet back to laughter she rose. This chair is my favorite repose. I was ten when she left But she’s with me everyday to let me know, she loves that I’m unique In all the universe and creation, This chair is my communication.
