Grandfather



 



 



If it was not for your determination



I'd cross my heart without cause



it has always been like I've treasured



more so now, that awareness has



widened my horizons.



 



Strange how life can change over



night, one minute we think we know all



the answers, the next, we have no clue



till something happens that not only



opens our eyes, but our hearts to what



we are living for.



 



My grandfather told me when I was



very young watching the sunset



My child, when you think you can touch



the sun you will cause your warmth



will reflect as bright as that fireball



you see right now”.



 



To this day I've never forgotten his words



he told me., so wise he was, knew someday



I would touch the sun, in which I've done



radiating a different kind of warmth.



 



The warmth of compassion, understanding



loving to the best of my knowledge, have



grown in wisdom, a teacher in my time



writing what flows within.



 



(Dedicated to my loving Grandfather)
