Shoes under the stairs


Shirley Hope

I stood and stared at the shoes under the stairs
All tidy and arranged in pairs
They were all worn once by feet well cared
How could it be that their owner
Has gone, taken away from them and me

Kept well polished, the shoes under the stairs
Arranged in rows, they only now served
As a reminder of the man that once wore
The shoes under the stairs
My brother

In memory of my brother Graham Smith
