A Future Unwritten

Chestnut curls and a cute button nose

Just like hers

Brilliant hazel eyes and dimples

Just like yours

 

I can hear her angelic voice

She puts her tiny hand in mine

Smiles and my heart melts

“Grandma”, she squeals in delight

 

There’s nothing I wouldn’t do for her

Just as I feel the same about you

She sits in my lap

And I read her her favorite story

 

I remember when you were this small

Bright blond hair

Tiny hands that grasped mine

My lap was once your favorite spot to sit

 

Now here you are

All grown up

And here she is

With the same twinkle that’s in your eyes

 

A future unwritten

For you’re still but a young boy

But growing so fast

Needing me less and less

 

I picture you grown up

In college

With a career

A home and family of your own

 

I see her sweet little face

She yells, “Daddy!” as you come to pick her up

Such pride in your eyes as you hold her

And pride in mine as I watch you both

 

I have such dreams for you

Though it’s your dreams that matter

Follow your heart

Let it lead you down the paths you’re to take

 

No matter where you go

And no matter what you do

I want you to know

I’ll always be proud of you

 

Though your future is uncertain

And my dreams may not match what will be

I have faith your future will be bright

And you will still be my everlasting light

  1. I love this poem because I get this image that I would find in the park. When the grandparents bring their little ones hand-in-hand. Thanks for the warm piece. 🙂
