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

We are always us, only the labels change. Just as we are slowing, more are added, but Granpa will be one of pride, seeing another cycle of life learn and grow. I do wonder however, where their supply of never ending treats comes from. I assume its a trade secret :)

I supply the live and treats that keep them happy
Kuchi kuchi!! She's so so so cute! And she's lucky to have you as a Grandpa...wish I could now hug my grandpa just like her.....
You're more than true with your words here dear friend...this technological arena suffocates the humans who are from the pure golden days...I've witness some of them and it's sad...but Almighty did keep something special for you like Payton in this generation.....May Almighty’s grace be always upon you and Payton and your family, ameen :)
