Treasure Island

L. C. Brown


Grandsons


When I first saw you,
tears filled my eyes.
With out a son of my own,
you filled my life with pride.
That little boy I picked up
to squeeze,
has turned into a man.
Only squeezing I get now
is when you shake my hand.
Some day you may marry,
have a family of your own.
If you have a son or grandson,
you'll know why I wrote this poem.

    I have two sons and three grandsons, and was present at only one birth: it was a beautiful moment though. Good poem. (Report) Reply

    Ah! a true Grandpop poem! As a grandmother 14 times over; yes, I can sympathize. Now wait 'till the greats and the great-greats come along.
