Thanks, Dera. Thanks very much. Those sentiments came from my heart as I sat here at my computer one day, and became sad thinking of how I never knew some of my ancestors, and wishing I could have walked with them and talked with them just once. I long to have photos that I don't think I will ever find.

I am not a writer by trade, profession, occupation, avocation, or hobby. Therefore, it never occurred to me to try to preserve this poem. You have given me an urge to do so. Thank you.


At the family reunion, my mother, aunt and I bemoaned the photos that were lost, discarded forever. In talking with my uncle, there are a few photos in his possession I hope to get copies for the family history.

I beg to differ, you are a writer. The contributions you have made on the Writers Forum and to Afrigeneas as a whole is proof of that. You are leaving a legacy and the poem should be added to it.
