Being again....still

How can I not believe in reincarnation?
This morning I said goodbye
to the reincarnation of my youth
Same skin.
Same hair, nose lips, kin.
Walking out the door
to catch the bus he said magically "bye".

I drove my once again grandfather
to school this morning.
He slept on the couch first. Same
He wiggles his feet. Same
As I dropped him off he magically said "Bye"

As I write, my sister (somewhere down state now)
is reborn in a bed upstairs
home (sick) from school today.

Getting up now to let the cat out
I lift my fathers body.
