Papa Tate

A Poem by Tate Morgan
"

We mixed colors from childhood with gentle tones that came with time gave birth to a generation that became the pride of our prime

"



My granddaughter Payton and I



We mixed colors from childhood

with gentle tones that came with time

gave birth to a generation

that became the pride of our prime

 

Those were days of joys un-ending

you think we won't see anymore

'Cause where we find ourselves these days

we have never been to before

 

Each place in life brings adventure

meant to try us all of our days

To test resolve and resilience

that we apply to each new phase

 

We will always have a purpose

as now I am called Papa Tate

To tell you the truth I love it

being a grandfather is great

 



 


Granddaughter Payton and I

Author's Note

Tate Morgan
The days of life may dim at times and new things always feel unsafe and insecure. But what we fear is infirmity. However Life is only good as long as it is changing and growing. Like the seasons we come and go and face the end like any man. So it is that when the time comes I'll conform to the masters plan

I fully understand your sentiment on this one.. as a "Me-ma" of 6 grandchildren.. I completely understand... every-time one of them says my name.. my heart melts.. and my strength
to protect them grows stronger.. She is lovely indeed..

Thank you kathy I hope you are well
This incredibly craved poem really gives me a nostalgic vibe. It did evoke in my mind that part of my ongoing childhood which I spent with my grandparents.

Your granddaughter, I bet,would be highly privileged when she will come to know that her grandfather has written this much beautiful poem for her.

No pearl in this world be great as much as this poem for her.

Thanks for this this reminiscence, Sir.
