Grandpa


Grandpa
by Anne Sikes

Grandpa was a gentle man,  his memory so very clear.

Remembering him makes me smile, a sweet smile it is.

And a quiet man was he, never saying more than was

Necessary.  Grandma made up for it though, as Grandpa

Donned a smile, sitting with hands folded, eyes twinkling,

Pretending not to be bothered by her outspokenness,

And waiting anxiously for his westerns to come on the tv.

      Thank you very much…thought I responded to this, but don’t see it, so hope this won’t be a duplicate. I miss him still, even with all the time that’s passed. He was awesome! –Anne
