One Eye
Written November 11, 2011

Judge Rembert
Guest Columnist


Where are we going One Eye…
I don’t know was his answer…
But if you go I know I go…

He was a small brown bear…
He lived with a short little girl…
She had brown hair too…

She went to bed with One Eye always…
In her three quarter bed…
They had to climb into that bed…
Had to use a stool at first…



Home Care Management - Help Wanted

She went to North Carolina…
She took One Eye…
They slept upstairs…
In the little twin bed…
At Aunt Es’s house…

They slept in the big double bed…
At Grandma’s house…
They slept in a tiny bed…
At the boarding school…
Sometimes they slept in a bed roll…
At mountain camp…

One Eye had lost his eye…
Many years ago…
But he could see just fine…

He was warm and lovin’…
He was a little dirty…
Did not smell…
Just a little dirty…

At age 18 she was getting a new bed partner…
Right before the wedding…
She gathered One Eye…
Lovingly she gave him…

To the orphanage home…
He would have a new home…
He had been a wonderful friend…
A wonderful travel partner…
He had much more love to give…

---More About Judge Rembert: WWII made Judge an only child when her half-brother was killed in the war. She lived in a tiny town in South Carolina until she was eight and her Mother went to work. She was sent to a boarding school in Belmont, N.C. From that time on she has lived back and forth in the two Carolinas. They are both home. She was born dyslexic and did not know what the problem was or that it had a name until she was about 45. She was unable to spell so she never put words on paper until she was 65 and had a computer with spell check. She comes from a long line of story tellers and a Mother that taught her much by telling stories. Stories about people and how they faced life and how they dealt with problems. If you read what she writes you may hear her Mother and her Grandmother talking to her. She is thrilled to know that anyone reads her words and finds them interesting. Oh, she is 75 now and makes her home in Maiden, N.C. If you like Judge’s writings or would like to comment on them let her know by emailing judgerembert@bellsouth.net.
