Grandparents - Poem by Jonathan Goldman a.k.a JGthepoet
Will others remember me
When from this Mortal Life I slip?
As I remember those of my forebears,
Who did before me live.
Today I remember my Mother's Mum,
For it is the Anniversary of her death,
And think that if it wasn't for her,
There would for me have been no birth.
Children always remember parents,
When from this Life they take leave,
Taken by HIM who Rules on High,
To rest near HIS Majestic Seat.
But we should not forget our Grandparents,
For without them where would we be?
Never to grace Life or this World,
Or to have sat on our parents' knee.
It is easy not to commemorate
The time they spent on Earth,
To remember how they lived their lives,
And were responsible for our parents' birth.
