Grandfather 1-20-00


A fisherman and his rod

on a warm summer's eve.

Sitting in his boat,

Looking at all the scenery

In all its peace.

Not wanting to be

Any where but here.

Staring ahead

With nothing disturbing him.

The sun lays upon

His unaging face.

He watches after his kids

And his grandchildren.

He teaches them

Everything he knows.

He appriciates

Everything his family teaches him.

For in every family

You must learn form

One another.

This wonderful man

Acts as a symbol

Of what's write and wrong.

He has seen many wars

witnessed many partings

My parents have

Gotten help from him

With their hardships.

He has taught me to

Love and care for one another.

This outragously caring man

Is my grandfather.
