If You Knew Me

If you knew the me

Who lives inside me,

You would love me,

I am sure.

You’d slap yourself

In the face,

For never noticing

My worth.

My eyes, would no longer,

Be brown, but golden life,

Glistening up at you,

With a smile as

Warm as


The way I walk

The words I speak,

My hopes, my dreams,

Even my giggle.

Would suddenly

Become what

Made your heart


Just a little.

But you never got

A chance to meet

The me who

lives inside me.

You only ever

Got to know

The external part

Of me.

But it’s okay,

It's best this way

For us,

To stay



Just so you know,

If you knew the me

Who lives inside me.

I’m more than certain,

You would love me.

We Need More Than Memorials this Memorial Day
Cape Cod Irish

When I was a child, I used to look forward to Memorial Day Weekend from the time I returned to school after Christmas vacation. It was the yearly benchmark announcing the end of the school year and the beginning of summer vacation. It meant I was one step closer to regattas, swim meets and tennis matches.
