“Innocence Of Heart”

The aroma of spaghetti sauce
permeated the air.
lingering five doors down on Fiesta Drive.

As the sun followed me intently,
to the backyard where
I was greeted by the green grass of home.

Opening the back screen door
of my childhood home,
little Italy was abound in my eyes.

One  pot for the boiling tender pasta,
one for the simmering sauce
expertly combined for a meal fit for a king.

My dad came home from work
singing Italian songs,
the scent of a hard days work covered him.

In this suburban house love lived,
now ghosts of meals
shared, love is very much alive now.

In our world where two
are gone forever,
their lives live in a child's innocent heart.
