A day to remember

Gazing on at my children

side by side with their grandparents,

how they have grown

in stature, intelligence and wit.


If they should turn around

they would see the pride

encompassing me as a glowing aura

radiating out warmth and happiness.


I hide a tear and hold my breath

to retain this precious moment

as the next one will see it gone,

but of course not forgotten.


A memory to cherish forever more.
