By Caryl Clem:
As indispensable as a backup flashlight battery
When life darkens, ahead difficult navigation
Love and wisdom shine in body form
Action centered supporting family
A search light offering a brighter platform.
Transportation to school
Bedtime requests, tuck in stories
Searching birthday gift “cool”.
Spend a 24/7 hour weekend monitoring children
Claiming their company, part of your vacation.
Flip any traumatic tragedy
Reversed by smiles and humor
Into a laughable comedy.
Events spun inside out
Removing personal doubt.
Grandparents, living source of family history
Legendary, bridging time
Discover what is mine
Building links to our ancestry
Linking past, future into a living story
Depending on your reliability.
Not important if one’s memories blur
You will always be honored for who you are.
Happy Grandparents Day
