Short and sweet, for my grandchildren.

When days no longer hold me
and shadows dance
in strange diffused spaces
where once I walked,
I remain in fullness of being.
On frosty nights of ring-ed moon
sweeping stars aside like curtains
to be with you.

Love it, it has such beauty, I hope your Grandchildren are old enough to appreciate such lovely words written just for them. 🙂 Sue.

Hi Sue,

Well, the oldest one is. She is almost 7 and the others are 4 and almost 3. I recited it to the oldest two today and it went down well.

They are my greatest joy.

Hi David,

If it was you who nominated it, I am most delighted. I tried to capture my great love for them that will remain long after I am gone.

Beautiful in it's shortness and simplicity! You'll always be that memory so real it shapes their soul and desires…

Thank you SO much for that lovely comment Supratik. I apologise for taking so long to reply.

All the blessings of the festive season to you and yours and every good wish for the coming year. I think we both know, it's going to be transformational… one way or the other.
