Daily missive for Monday the 28th of July~by Peter Forster


 

 

Daily missive for Monday the 28th of July

A light shines within me.
It is a glow that grows
With the love
I have
And is freely given.
By this golden child,
Whose simple pleasure
It is to say,
I love you.
With an honesty
That takes my breath away.
Artifice grows not
In a heart
When love is given freely
And all it demands
Is love returned.

Deep in my bosom,
The home of my heart,
A place where love sits,
Growing with every kiss,
Each squeeze of tiny fingers,
The feelings overwhelm me.
Even simple words catch in my throat.

We sit and watch
As she potters
In the garden.
Tiny, green fingered
Mini horticulturist,
Spraying water
Into thirsty blooms.
I gaze in wonder
At my good luck,
To have such beauty
To call my own flesh.

My wife and daughter,
Watch with me
On this fine day
With more to come
Tomorrow.
A Grandson and
Granddaughter.
A wondrous trilogy,
So much more than
I could dream,
To give their trust,
And love
To me, their Granddad.
