Grandparents - Poem by Kaila George

What's it really like?
To have a grandparent
I ask

Do they tell you stories?
Of old about their life

Do they tuck you in bed?
As you turn out your light

Do they hug you with love?
And tell how great you are

Do they love and support you
No matter what your parents say

Do they shower you with gifts?
Just because they love you so

Do you have special memories?
That only you three should know

Wouldn't that be grand?
To know someone like that

To share your life's secrets
From family's strife and woes

So cherish ever moment
Ever story ever told

So with feeling and sadness
I say this with due respect
Just be damn grateful

They touched your life and soul.
Something alas I really never had.


Poet's Notes about The Poem

A life with out grandparents is hard, mine lived overseas so I never really knew them at all. (Sigh)
