! ! All Cheeks

All cheeks -
and two blue eyes
that stare
so gravely
one minute,
so merrily
the next.

All cheeks -
and a mouth
so serious,
so solemn,
that breaks
so suddenly
into a toothless grin.

All cheeks -
and skin
so plump
so soft,
that demands
to be kissed
again
and again.

All cheeks -
and hands
so small
so fine
that grasp and hold
a grandmother’s face
without minding
about the wrinkles.

All cheeks -
My grandson
My joy.

    Nobody can do for little children what Grandparents do. They
    actually sprinkle a stardust over lives of their adorable little
    grandchildren. The poem reflects a very strong bondage between
    grandparents and grandsons..........
