Listen To Their Stories - Poem by Kailynd McGregor
Take some time to listen
To their stories of long ago
You just might learn something
You didn't already know
Grandmas and Grandpas,
Aunts and uncles, too
They talk of their lives and loves
And of their best friends, too
Grandma talks of her boyfriends,
Of her and grandpa's blind date
She said it was love at first sight,
But that her older sister made them wait
Her sister said, 'Wait till your twenty-
Then you can decide,
If you want to spend your life with him
And then I'll stand by your side.'
So on March 9th,1963,
Just four days after her 20th birthday,
They said their vows
And thought nothing could go wrong.
But only eleven years after that happy day,
Their marriage came to an end-
Grandma lost her husband
And one of her very best friends.
Grandpa died when he was thirty-three,
While making his daily rounds.
His helicopter hit the telephone lines
And came tumbling to the ground.
Today, thirty-three long years later,
Grandma still cries almost everyday-
She thinks about him all the time,
But knows she'll see him again someday.
