Grandkids Not Of My Reality

Copyright 12-14-2015

Steve Lake

 

Decades spent admiring others

Reaching an age of content

Kids grown now another offspring born

Simultaneously becoming Grandkids and Grandparents

 

No special requirement needed

An act of nature taking its course

Evolution continues

Or does it?

 

Many reasons fall to blame

Excuses flow like a raging river

Effort made from the old with time

The young make no time

 

Name alone makes no difference

In name just a relative made

Until a bond is formed

A family stays in its generation

 

Time slips by without reward

Grandchild and Grandparent are denied

The young too busy for effort

The young becoming the broken link

 

Grandchild growing year by year

A separation that begins to widen

Time becoming the enemy

The young too busy to see the light

 

A Grandparent void of pictures

Never a birthday candle to blow out

Christmas just a another reminder

Of what the Grandparents goes without

 

Grandkids not of my reality

My kids ensure our distance

One day when they grow up into reality

Too late my bones laid to rest

To my Grandkids I’m sorry

Time has ran out
