The sparkle in a grandmother’s eyes
the first time she sees and holds
her first and only grandchild.
He is nine years old now and
the sparkle is still there in her eyes
when he visits her in the nursing
The Parkinson’s has her confined her
to a wheelchair now but it cannot take
away the joy she feels every time she sees
the little boy she had once held in her arms,
silently thanking and praising God
for blessing her with a grandchild.
