Memories of Summer

I remember playing jump
Rope with my cousins,
Drinking grape soda and eating
Laughing at the older people
Who were drunk and dancing
Witnessing my great grandmother
Spreading the icing on her famous
Caramel cake…mmmm
Those were the good old days
When we had family reunions
Every year and didn’t wait
Until a funeral to gather
Good old soul food was cooked
For us to gather
Now there’s no soul
And I long for those days
