She Is 101 Years Old - Poem by wabi sabi

she is sometimes forgetting things away
memory sometimes serves her correctly
she is generally stabborn and asks me to bring her some candies
at nursing center
she is 101 years old

she has been a widow for 75 years, bringing up two children
I am her grandson

we laugh even though we have misunderstandings on occasionally
I couldn't understand why she always had been stabborn

Now I can
it is the way she tries to keep people away from her
meaning that she is O.K.

Finding her stabborn was such a big mistake
it is her pride, wisdom and mostly

independence, not to get us toubled with her

    I am so happy! I could give you a ten, it doesn't happen often, each time I clicked in vain, with no rating result, here you are, now Yeey! You have what this poem deserve. I understand your grandma so well, you are right, she wouldn't want to be a nuissance. The old people are wisdom filled and very sweet, they may loose it sometimes but the moments they have with full mind and soul are the best! (Report) Reply
