My Loving Grandpa

My Loving Grandpa

A Poem by Anushree

I have never had the opportunity to witness the love shared by a grandfather with his granddaughter. So here is a poem wishing i could!


I wish I had a grandpa like all my friends,

Of dragons and knights who’d tell me tales.

We’d read,we’d talk,we’d laugh all day long,

He’d let me rock on his chair while we sang a song.

I’d hold his hand and walk at a leisurely pace,

Or I’d point to a tree and ask him to race.

He’d take me for a drive in his old and battered car,

Although it was fun,yet the car wouldn’t go far.

Then he’d buy me sweets and ice-creams for sure,

And would never get mad if I asked for more.

Alas! these are only but wishes tall,

For I can behold him only by the portrait on the wall.

I love you Grandpa,my heart cries for you,

Now that you are an angel, please make my wish come true.
