TO BE A MEMORY

She hopes to be a memory
for her grand children.
There’s always the possibility
that they’ll look back
and not recall her.

So when does it begin?
How old must they be
which leads to
how old will she be?

Of course
she’d like to be with them forever —
at least through high school.
And how about the wedding
and maybe great grand children?

She’s greedy
for more years than she can count.
