Mayflower Road (for Chris L. Neblett Sr.)

Updated: Mar 27

dreams have meaning, and promises

are meant to come true.

I remember whenever you tripped

becuz you moved to fast,

we helped you up

you learned balance, learned

to compete,

learned to win medals.

Heart and mettle of fire,

a champion loves harder than usual,

it's all you knew

our curly-haired Sampson

family is your strength.

So many tears I'm losing my step

managing time of

a man aging against family time,


Our torch was lit and it still burns

only brighter now

only family can carry it

66 miles, I drifted off track

steadfast in honoring you

by remaining on course

toward our starting block

on Mayflower Road.
