Old ladder-back chair with woven seat
always sat by Grandma's front door.
Because no one ever sat on it .  .  .
I often wondered what it was for.

One of a kind chair, always stood alone
never used by family or guest.
When Grandma died, Mom brought it home .  .  .
where it sat by the hearth to rest.

If Grandma's chair had talked then
all the people it met.
I'd have listened carefully to every tale .  .  .
and promised to never, ever forget.

Now Grandma's chair belongs to me
it seems content in every way.
With soft cushion, and all polished like new .  .  .
I use it most every day.

Grandma's chair holds a place of honor
where it sits in front of my desk.
It makes me sit straight and tall .  .  .
while it helps me write my very best.

I truly believe a chair can be happy
and there's no doubt this one is.
With a mission in life to keep going .  .  .
there is always a reason to live.

Beautifully expressed, Donelle. It is true that an "inanimate" object can aquire personality and meaning. Thank you. Love and best wishes,

Hi Donelle
I love my rocking chair too. I sit in it to teach piano. If only it could talk, it would have a few stories to tell. Cheers!

This is so sweet! It makes me think of my grandmother's old rocking chair. Who knew furniture had so much more meaning than just a place to sit. :]

Nice one, Donelle. I thought this might be about the high chair you've mentioned.

Beautiful sentiments and can you just imagine the stories that chair has?? If it could only talk, huh....
