In honor of Grandparent and Grandfriend Day 2018...I’d like to share a poem written by April Johnson.
I Was Thinking Of Love And You Came To Mind
I was thinking of love, and you came to mind.
I have many memories I would like to rewind.
Do you remember those days I would lie in your lap
As you doodled my ears, I would take a short nap.
I’m remembering the nights that we spent together.
You would scratch my back gently, ever so tender.
As I rewind a bit more, I am seeing much fun.
I’m remembering the fall and all the raking we had done.
So many leaves piled by the tree,
You would cover me up till I couldn’t see.
Those are just a few of the memories I have.
Let’s rewind a bit more to when I was bad.
I’m sorry for the times when I made you cry.
Looking back at the past, I’m not sure I know why.
I know as a child I was stubborn, selfish, and strange,
But look at me now, and how much I’ve changed.
I assume looking back, it’s hard to understand
That today I’m quite normal, I think G-d lent a hand.
The ending is near, I think I’ve said enough!
I could go on forever, but ENOUGH IS ENOUGH!
All joking aside, I would be up all night
If I continued this poem and continued to write.
There are just enough words to express all the love
Other than the words written above.
So I thank you!
From the bottom of my heart for loving me no matter what.
