I never thought I'd be a good grandma.

New Life

Visiting the grandkids, now that they're little people,

Not just babies who goo and gah, but talking up a storm,

Is like opening a book about the world,

And reading for the first time,

What makes me laugh,

What makes me think,

And what wonder can be found

In a dandelion,

A frog,

Or the spray of water from a hose.

I really didn't know how much I'd love

The sweet hugs and running races

Walking backwards or jumping over cracks,

Or lying down to hear the water trickle in the brook.

Such a lovely way to spend a day,

As long as they tuck me in early to get ready

For the next.  Night, night, Grandma!

Your poem makes me want to be a grandma, but I am afraid I have a few years before that can happen. Very sweet poem with lots of great imagery. Thanks for sharing.

YES being a grandparent is truly the reward for all we do in easy to identify with this as the grandfather of four.
