where July is a picnic of egg sandwiches, cress-stippled,

Your dentures sit in an open glass above the nightstand
Remember the tears grandma sang before she passed?

those hands that I loved so very much,
not a day spent with her I will regret.

With a sweet smile as bright as gold.
I think about the days ahead.
It saddens me, I'm growing old.
I love that...
