Nostalgia at Basell’s
By David Smith September 29, 2009
Basell’s takes me back;
Childhood memories are right on track.
A little nostalgia goes a long way;
To trigger memory; the past is at play.
Observing the counter;
How freezers open at the top
My grandmother’s store; there is flashbacks a lot.
The desk with handles, like half moons of steel.
Come up from underneath for fingertips to feel.
Memories are alive; loved ones now laid to rest.
Their joy and encouragement gave me happiness.
Seeing the history of an old fashioned place;
Love for my elders; security to face.
A break at Basell’s; a sanctuary to find.
Childhood comes alive; a secure peace of mind.
Basell’s takes me back; my journey from within.
How parents and grandparents helped me begin.
