Comments about Judith S. Mertz
To My Grandchildren
Often when I can't sleep, I sit up on my bed
Thoughts of all of you rush through my head.
There are many nights I've spent like this,
With the thirteen of you everyday that I miss.
It's 3:30 am as pictures and thoughts go through
My mind, the lives of everyone of you.
I live here with four that I really love,
But I love all of you, I swear, by my God above.
You've all given me great reason for life to go on,
You've all turned my last 20 years into song.
Sometimes as I sit here I hear the sound
Of voices of many boys and girls playing around.
