POETRY for My Granddaughters
By Jeanette from the Philippines
Alaina and Peachy came to visit
Prancing and dancing with their little feet.
Their sparkling eyes and sweet smiles
Bring my thoughts across the miles.
How I wish I could bring back time
And cuddle you in these arms of mine;
a kiss from Alaina
Because you are off and we don’t see much
I ask of you to please get in touch.
Years from now I will be old
Weak and sick so I will be told;
And I just wish you will be in sight
Saying, “Hello Grandma! We’ll stay for the night.”
