Not to Be Forgotten

Our grandson (then age four) trailed behind his parents as we stood by our door. At their car, he turned. . . Something was amiss. He bounded back, climbed our porch steps (with my husband's aid), then reaching up to me, said, "I forgot the hug and kiss!" For Black Eyed Susan's "Forgotten" Contest

    Andrea, You just had to do it didn't you, this poem first wretched at my heart and then my eyes started getting wet. I thought I had a truck load of love for my children but nothing compares to the feeling I get when I see my grand son who is now 8 months old, he just melts my heart. Thank you so much for sharing this wonderful vivid poem, I'm going to go see my grand son first thing in the morning now. God bless and Take care, Dave

    Ahh that is so sweet. Rylan does that-- grandpa had gone to the car and grandma got her hugs and kiss but grandpa didn't so then he ran out to the car so grandpa could get the same a kiss and a hug. Nothing better than grandkids. love phyl

    I am not extra good at these creative shape poems, Andrea, BUT I think u could pull this off with ease....Rewrite this one in a shape poem format...STAIR STEPS where the poem begins at the bottom! It would be rockin' coolio! luv this poem, it's sweet innocent message of childhood, and the fact that you have been blessed in such a GREAT BIG WAY with the love of grandchildren! gwendolen
