She went with a smile….

“Wrinkled skin but strong wit

Sitting by the fireplace

Carrying a patina of age old memories

Big bright beauteous eyes

Tears of joy falling as time flies

Head tilted on one side

Eyes closing every now and then

Distress turned into ecstasy

As she heard the doorbell ring

Blurred vision soon cleared up

A young man enters followed by a woman

It took a while for her to recognize

The man handed over something

Wrapped in a flannel blanket,

She felt it with her shakey hands

A small heart beat was felt by her trembling fingers

And a cry which she never thought would hear

“It’s a boy, grandma” said the man

A proud smile appeared and eyes narrowed

A final drop of joy caressed the floor

She held the baby close and went into a deep sleep.”
