MY GRAND FATHER

MY GRAND FATHER

A Poem.


My grandfather is someone

With a silver in his hair

And a gold in his heart

His mouth is filled with wisdom.


He trained my father

In modest cultural manner

My fine grand father

Has unquestionable charisma


If he has fathered my father

Then  he is also my father 

No wonder I can see

By fates decree.


I love my grandfather

For he was destined 

Long ago to father my father

And to be my grand father


When I pee in me

He guides in love

When we have a walk

He holds my hands


I Looked at him and wonder

Why his bears are white

While my papa's bears are black

But oh that's old age's might


I hide in his bosom

When thunder blasts it's horn

And when I cry oh! oh!

He will say to me fear not grand son
