To my Grandkids
To these new souls I have been entrusted to help guide
What words did I not hear that I need them to hear?
May I voice the message that I still crave in my own inner-child
What if I fail them?
You will not… just trust
What do I do to help?
Let your heart be your guide… it’s gotten you this far
What if they become sad too?
You will see and keep them close… you will see
Oh please. that I may find generations of wisdom to offer them,
And accept every day that they are here to teach me too…
To my grandkids both now and forward,
I promise you my heart and the very best of me …
