Do It Again Auntie, Do It Again

Sweet memories of you are my home

I went for a walk in the park today

I watched a mother and her toddler play.

Sweet memories of you came to mind

The days I’d play with you outside.

I remembered the times on the playground

When I’d swing you round and round.

Do it again auntie, you’d cry. Do it again.

I went back home and opened the door.

Suddenly it didn’t feel like home any more.

I stumbled through the doorway

Longing to hear your voice in hallway.

But all I heard was the voice in my head.

Trapped sounds trying to be heard.

Let’s do it again auntie, let’s do it again.

Screaming louder now until I am sure I can

hear the pitter patter of your footsteps as you ran.

This is home now, the memory of you in my head.

This is home now, where I will do it again and again.
