My little lovely grand daughter

My little angel
I miss you
I miss your smile
Your gait
And your cry

God created far flung continents
But he should have made them short
For grand dads and cute grand daughters
Then they could meet in spite of the distances

I recall with affection
Your sitting in my lap
And responding to the prayer in the evening
I haven't felt so serene anytime

Taking you for a walk
Putting on your sandals
Showing you the duckies and fish
Making you stand in the window
Showing you the flying airoplane

Watching you regale everyone at home
Your adoring blabber and shrieks
More than gave me all the happiness

Today I sit by the windowside
Waiting dreamingly for the day
To meet you again
To run after you, holding your hand
Forgetting my years
To be young again

When I see you on the webcam
It is joy hour for me
And your familiar waving at me
Makes my otherwise lonely day

    This is beautiful. It helps me to imagine what it will be like to be a Grandparent one day. I love my sons more than life itself, and I look forward to knowing the love of my grandchild. It is so obvious how much you miss her. (Report) Reply

poet Percy Bysshe Shelley

We are as clouds that veil the midnight moon;

Streaking the darkness radiantly!--yet soon
