Poem: All the Days Have Come and Gone
(These times of when my grandchildren were little and with us a lot- were very special!)
All the Days Have Come and Gone
All the days have come and gone.
Those days have been completed…
when I would give my time and love…
to come whenever needed.
To push a swing…and hold my breath…
and hope they’d not let go!
To have an answer ready
for the things they’d want to know.
Playing cards or dolls or cars,
or Super Hero guys.
And always having cookies,
or an extra cool surprise!
The time for tucking them in bed,
on pallets, wall to wall…
late nights of scary movies …
I miss them most of all!
The pride I felt- the purest joy-
of having them all near…
Those times remain - Beyond Compare -
those times when they were here.
