Nana Is Ninety Today

©

Published: February 2006

Agatha, Grandma, Nana to me,
looks in my mind to be fifty three.
Always the gray hair, always the smile
Her short stories take a quite a while
That isn't a problem or bother so much
wish I heard more I've grown outta touch
Her cooking is always the best it can be
better than restaurants, better than me
Her home is full of family and friends
The meals and laughter they never end
My growing up years were wholesome, pure
with family so close there weren't fears
I'm far away now, a family of my own
Can't get away easily, back to my home
The job and fresh start led me away
to find a beginning, to live my own way
wish we could be there where I call home
for the sake of my kid not my sake alone
Sometimes our wishes seem too far away
but close your eyes Nana
and wish for something today.
