Lola (Grand Mother) - Poem by Rommel Filoteo

Having you in my life,
Even thou for a short time,
You brought me happiness
That a lifetime could not bring.
You have touched my life so deeply
In your own expressive way
That you helped me go on
Moreover, come into my own person more.
On certain days,
You even made things okay
When I would be at my lowest
In heart, and through the bind of love,
You will always be my LOLA
For my love to you bounded
As that of grand children, love her grand mother.
I will miss your sweet caress
I will miss your good night kisses
I will miss your warm embrace,
And in the mornings when I awake,
At least I can find your eyes in the blue sky.
You will always be my LOLA for the rest my life.

    I really love this poem, it's touching and true. I grew up with my grandparents, i thought i was their youngest child, growing up then i realized, i was their first grandchild. Their love to their grandchildren is truly amazing. Thank you Rommel for sharing, i love this and.............you. Well done!

    This is a very touching poem, it carresses my heart, I can relate to this very well, I lost my Granma at a young age and still to this day miss her very much. We are fortunate individuals to have had the gift of a grandmother in our lives, so many do not and will never know what it's like to have been given this gift. Your poem shows the great love, care and affection we receive from our most wise Grandmothers. Good Grandmothers leave us with loving words and always a positive view on life. They can advise us from their world of experience and the wisdom they have gained over the years. Having a Grand-parent is truly a precious gift to children. God Bless all Grandmothers and Grandfathers. Another wonderful poem Rommel.

    'And in the mornings when I awake, / At least I can find your eyes in the blue sky.' stands out for me in this pensive tribute to a dearly loved grandmother. I'm sure Lola would be very proud of her grandson were she able to read these beautiful words. love, Allie xxxx (Report) Reply
