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

So awesome! I take care of my grandson several days a week and it's like getting a second chance at more happiness. There is nothing greater than philosophies of a seven year old.

As a young grandma four times over let me tell you there's nothing better. Its different from how we felt about our children...all the fun and none of the responsibility maybe? Whatever it is it changes your perspective on so much. I was blessed to have my maternal grandparents as active figures in my life. Their value was beyond measure! I fully intend on leaving that same mark on my own grandbabies. This is a lovely poem and the pictures are priceless!

TL I thank you i too love the first quatrain the best.
A true feel-good piece...impossible not to smile upon reading these words...your ability to fuse the musings of the heart and mind are impeccable, and filter it through the perfect form and rhyme scheme to boot...gorgeous work my friend.
