Last Ohio Run

After eighteen years influenced by mother's perception
Dawned new understanding at the reception
These were the Ohio clan she had never known
With whom my daughter shared only ancestry, blood and bone

Over the sound of a lassies brogue she had never cried
She had not know Nel, great grandmother of the bride
Newfound bonds grew as she tipped a few with her kindred kind
Learning parts of her past with lads and lassies of the same mind

Maybe she realized then in light of a different color
I was not just one who had miserably failed her mother
Saw me through Nel's eyes, lovely lass from Kirk an Tilla
As her favorite grandson returned from Pennsylvania

We bonded that night by the shore of Lake Erie
Shared sprits and with kin made merry
We arrived separate came together and left as one
I remember thinking as we headed back east toward the sun

Nice one Tom.... I've been there and done that... and it was a very unique experience, indeed.... Meeting an entire segment of my own family for the first time.. and being taken under their wings - just because I was family - It was an experience I'll never forget...

This is great Tom!

Very lovely piece Tom...

 A soul that writes from the heart and shares it, truly gives a gift extraordinaire!
