Noah, I see you sitting by that lamb that's behind
The vision of your smile, embedded in my mind
Remembered the horse, as we helded on the winds of a carousel
The bronze whale tail, dripping water, in my arms I held
Sea birds we watched, on top of a space needle
You stared at the ugly monk fish, and at the beauty of a blue parrot fish
How can I make this day last forever, I wish
Noah, my first grandson, your only four months old, how will you remember?
Grandpa will write these words, now this day in October
I'll remember the first impression you gave me
Always smiling, as I carried you by the sea

Thanks Cap!

Thanks Cap! Hello everyone, yes it's been almost a year. How time flys. Just a poem to help me remember meeting my first grnadson. All my grandkids and two daughters came up to see me and what a blast. Now they're thousands of miles away and left with only memories. House is so quiet now. I've been out of touch with writing poems but thanks again for your comment.
