Good morning and welcome to this week’s edition of the Poetry Corner. Please join me in welcoming Vic Tomlinson! 🙂
Becoming a Grandparent by Vic Tomlinson
The idea of becoming a grandparent
is both exciting and scary.
It means I’m getting older
so I think of my own mortality.
It means I can contribute
to the rearing and development
of a special human being.
It means I can spoil the child
and then return him/her to their parents.
It means I have another chance
to get it right
in raising a child.
It means that spending
quality time with him/her
has taken on a whole
new meaning for me.
It means I had better make
the most of this opportunity
to be a grandparent.
Awesome poem, Vic. Thanks for sharing. 🙂
