Love That Will Last

The sun is setting in the west
A breeze is blowing through her hair
This is the way he likes it best
Them sitting in their rocking chairs

Grandkids come, and on his lap
He tells the stories of younger years
And on their heads he'll plop his cap
And chase away their childish fears

Grandma's love for all would show
As she held one close and dried a tear
Family and friends would always know
In her heart, they were held so very dear

Still holding hands they rock along
Remembering all the days gone past
And to each other they sing a song
No matter what, their love will last

    I especially like the last verse because it sums up the poem so well. It brings back some good memories, reading about the grandchildren and how they loved them.
