Poem 12 – Grandkids


there are six of you now,

and I have met you all.

I shall watch as you grow

guided and loved

by parents who dote on you

leading you carefully along life’s paths.

who’ll pick you up when you fall,

catch you when you stumble

care and caress those hurts both inside and out

who will always be there no matter what.

for each of you will test them

throw obstacles to their plans

test their resolve

but always be there for you,

your greatest supporters through thick and thin.

    A grandparent watching his child parent his grandchildren…there is something so sweet and heartwarming about that. Love the poem. 🙂

    A nice message for the grandkids 🙂

  4. Ah, lovely. That honour isn’t in my future – but then I’d probably be the crotchety one that everyone is scared of – think Hansel & Gretel….!

  5. Perhaps print this out and frame it with the date you wrote and give it to each of them?
