My Grandma's Treasures

Lately you've both been on my mind and I think a lot about  those carefree days 
When I would run barefoot next door to your house  singing all the way 
I never had to knock because I knew I was always welcomed there 
Gram were always in the kitchen  while granda was finally resting in his rocking chair 

Granda would say awwwwwww by chippers come sit with me and let me tell you about the old days 
And I was content to sit there eating  candy as my head on his shoulder lay 
Some days I miss you  so much but  I can still feel you  very near  watching over me 
Your love and kindness guiding me as guardian angels shedding light on the path for me to see 

Granda remember how you would let me take your horse Nell and haul out your winter wood 
When I got out Gram and I would unload the sled and pack it all away  the best we could 
Then I think of the year before you died and you told me all about your dream 
Its something that will stay in my mind forever I think about it a lot it seems 

You told me how you were going up a ladder and you were climbing it all alone 
You were making your final journey and were at last going home 
You told me your God  had said you must walk the righteous way with me my son 
You said you were begging others to follow you so they could go home when their life was done 

Then you were gone and it seems Gram was never the same without you in her life each day 
Sadly we watched her slowly slip from us and her tired lonely mind began to stray 
They all told us it was normal for her to act the way she did with the disease that had stole her mind 
But I still think she had just given up when your strong arms and tender voice were no longer there to find 

Well tonight I sit here and think about how you both touched my life in a way like no one else 
Tears running down my face I hold your memories guarded and locked inside my self 
I just beg of you never leave my side and guard me till my journey is ended here 
Then I will walk with you both and relive those memories we once shared

“But is it such a bad thing to live like this for just a little while? Just for a few months of one's life, is it so awful to travel through time with no greater ambition than to find the next lovely meal? Or to learn how to speak a language for no higher purpose than that it pleases your ear to hear it? Or to nap in a garden, in a patch of sunlight, in the middle of the day, right next to your favourite fountain? And then to do it again the next day?”
