Remembered

When I am dead,

I hope the words etched

Above my head

Describe how I inspired others.

 

When they reminisce,

let it be with love

I wish to have left wisdom

in my living.

 

When stories are told of my antics

may I be painted the heroine.

Let them say with a hearty laugh

that I made them smile.

 

I pray that when I am gone,

 I have left the mark of friendship.

A spark of kindness

and a bucket of joy.

 

I hope that people

hold me in high regard.

May my light

 shine  with every recollection.

Originally posted on Grandmother Musings:

Spooky Pumpkins for Halloween

Scary faces evil and mean

Carved with malice and marked with fear

A creepy tradition year after year

Signs, Signs, Everywhere a Sign

It is hard to find a place where there are not signs. I am always fascinated by the signs that are posted in our world. Could we survive without a sign?

It Is Almost Time

Originally posted on Grandmother Musings:

It is almost time for the big day.

There are last-minute errands and phone calls to make.

Nerves are strung tight and frayed.

Excitement is building.

By this time next week, it will all be a memory.

I want to cry every time I think about him.

I remember cuddling, story books, and dinnertime.

Now, he is all grown up and independent.

Soon he will have a family of his own.

Time flew by too fast and forgot to stop.

I will try not to cry during the ceremony.

I will smile and greet the guests with pride.

Saturday will be a grand day.

The occasion where my sons says, “I do” with his bride.

Communication Breakdown

Originally posted on Grandmother Musings:

I wanted to call you

But I did not have a dime

I needed to talk to you

But I did not have the time.

 

How do we get it together?

Miscommunication has kept us apart

What level of connection do we need?

I SHOULD HAVE KNOWN THIS FROM THE START

 

Trapped by a string of gutless  proposals

The phone does not show your face.

I can only hear voice inflections

I need to travel to your place.

 

Phone calls, texting, and twitter

They are a sad replacement for the whole you

Technology has fooled me

Into believing you understand what I do.
