Window to Yesterday


Marilyn Ferguson ©2003

She stands there at the window

A child of two or three

I wonder what she’s thinking

As she’s peering back at me.

Her dress is full of ruffles

Adorned with pretty lace

Eyes so wide and trusting

A smile upon her face.

I see her gently waving

Her spirit seems to say

Give me just a moment

I’ll come outside to play.

I see another figure

A ghost from long ago

She stands there in the window

I know, this can’t be so.

Her smile is warm and tender

She waves to me outside

She’s softly blowing kisses

I brush my tears aside.

The face looks so familiar

I know this cannot be

The lady is my mother

The little girl was me.
