Grandchildren

By Victoria Dame

Grandchildren are jewels that sparkle brightly
in the sunlight of your later years. They are
sunshine and laughter that play across your soul.
Bringing youth to a body that has grown old.

Grandchildren are chocolate ice cream bars that
fill your body with sweetness. They melt even
the hardest casings of your heart, leaving you
all sticky with the warmth from their hugs and kisses..

Grandchildren are picture books overflowing
with memories that flood your heart with joy.
The pages that you turn each day bring peace, and
each picture shows that your life is now complete.

A sweet gift from God, wrapped in ribbons and bows.
I couldn’t survive without my grandchildren!
