Treasured Memories

Treasured Memories

Engraved forever in my mind
The smell of sugar pie in the oven
And my grandmother’s loving hands
Their gentleness their softness
Ever busy and endlessly creating

Only on rare occasions would they stop to play cards
This crazy game called Pinochle
That she had taught only me
I still see my grandmother’s hands holding cards
And how she loved this silly game with its silly rules

I mostly remember we had to marry kings and queens
And how she so gleefully laughed when she did
I often compared it in my head to playing dolls
I would love to listen and register her childlike joy
It never ceased to amaze me

This pinochle with its silly rules
How my grand-mother loved every minute of it
Especially how she would play with only me and then
How delicious that slice of sugar pie straight out of the oven
Unforgettable quality time with her grand-daughter of ten

“I’ll make you happy, baby, just wait and see
For every kiss you give me I’ll give you three
Oh, since the day I saw you

You know I will adore you ’til eternity”
