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

Grandparents are the only one's who remember it is your birthday even without Facebook reminding them. I love my grandparents. You definitely are an ideal grandpa. What a sweet little, lullaby like piece (because of the song). Big hug.

In India it is said "Interest is more liked than the original sum of money" meaning grandparents are fonder of theor grandchildren than their sons. Very short, sweet snd personal piece. Reminded me of my grampas.. one who died when I was six, other who is idol (as a poet). Thanks for sharing.

Aw, this is so sweet. What an amazing experience it must be to have a little life touch yours in such a way. And too see your own children grow up and bring this light into your life. Beautiful.

Thank you I am always looking for the best life has to offer and grand-kids are the best
and we can't help but see reflections of ourselves in those grandkids...as we live those hard to get back moments through them...watching them grow.

love the sentiment in this,Tate.
