Today’s the Day

You knew me best
When we were kids
We ran and played
On skates and skids

We wrestled round
The floor and bed
Splashed pool and lake
Smoked by the shed

You cried with me
When pets were lost
Broke head and arm
Your bike was tossed

And now machines
Keep you alive
Cigs killed your lungs
They won’t revive

I can’t play now
You run alone
Please take my love
To worlds unknown

Baby Stevie Small
