Catch You On The Flip Side

Catch you on the flip side
of this wild ride.
Happy toes tapping,
sunshine hands clapping,
strands of hair overlapping.

Catch you on the flip side
wading in the low tide.
No matter the situation
there was a beach vacation,
a homemade celebration.

Catch you on the flip side
when the pain subsides.
The little girl eyes you’ve dried,
the dreams you set aside
to birth ours alive.

Catch you on the flip side
where endless love resides.
One wink of your bluebell eyes,
another walk in your stride;
you’re my most treasured guide.

Catch you on the flip side
where grandkids stride
like ducklings, little lucky ones.
Granny is the most fun;
her love is pure sun.


This poem is written for my mother who taught me how to be a giver and show kindness. She loves saying, “Catch you on the flip side,” so I used this phase to frame this verse.

It’s in response to this week’s Flashback Track #15 Momma Told Me. Join us in sharing your mother’s favorite saying(s).
