NaPoWriMo Day 27 ~ Poem Based On A Photo

Today’s prompt at NaPoWriMo is to write a poem from a photograph. I chose the very top photo which was posted. If you would like to see it, please click on the link.

I’m Still Here

It has been a long time since we tossed the ball together
Just this morning you said this before you went down for breakfast
As you looked at my picture that you keep on your trophy shelf
Over toast and juice, I heard you telling mom how much you miss me
How much you wished that I could see your first high school game

Well, I saw every last inning my dear brother
I stood to the side of home plate cheering you on
It may have been a long time since we tossed the ball
But I’ve never been far away from all of you
Hopefully one day you won’t be so sad when you think of me
And you’ll remember all of the great times we had

I’m doing just fine over here with grandma and grandpa
We come to a lot of your games together
When they aren’t visiting their friends at shuffleboard
But me, I haven’t missed a one and I never will
I’m still your favorite little tail, always tagging along
Right by the side of your guardian angels
We’ll meet again someday but in the meantime
Play ball!
