Robertatalloni means creativity. Whether in writing or in more typical art forms artistry (and a bit of fun) must be part of the work.

Dreaming About When

My Grandson Will Visit


Giggling footsteps, happy smiling hugs,

Little arms wrapping around my neck,

Kisses on his button nose.

Listening in earnest to stories,

Jammies curled 'round wiggly legs,

Sleepy head upon my shoulder.


Sunny eyes eating breakfast ask,

“What shall we do today, Grandmama?”

“Can we have an adventure?”

“Could we paint aeroplanes and ladybugs,

Or hike to the ice cream store?”

“We might even see a soldier!”


“Your wish is my command, little one,

Today is my day to enjoy you!”

“You are so special to me.”

"Tomorrow we must do something else."

“But this day...why, today is

Our day for being together.”


“For you see,

sweet child,

Grandmama

loves you

very much.”

My Precious Grandson,

Lives are woven with change and your life will be no different, but you may count on my love and prayers. Since I first wrote your poem I've watched you grow and develop into a budding young man. You've also had a sister and little cousins added to your life, making you the leader of the pack!

As you continue to grow up I try to pray for you according to the circumstances of your life, but no matter what those are now or how they may change in the future, the most important thing is that you keep your hands open before God with a decisive honesty that comes from a truly humble spirit. May you live according to God's Word, glorifying Him in all that you do and say, gaining His richest blessings to help you keep your feet in a good path.

If you make His Word your food and drink you will be able to walk as one who fears God more than most men do when you are grown up. May He make His face to shine upon you and give you His peace by granting you a desire for His Word that causes you to fully embrace His truths, with the result being that your path grows brighter and brighter.

As you continue to grow I pray that you will determine to walk through life asking God to help you maintain a conscious awareness that you are walking before Him. May He grant you a love for His fellowship that causes you to continually seek His face according to His Word through His Son, Jesus the Christ.

I pray that in word and deed you will always pursue the peace that firmly sustains those who have submitted in their spirit to the ways of God. May His presence be your joy and His grace be your strength all the days of your life, and, as you discover the truths bound up in the fact that He is our only true joy, may you find that you are complete in Him.

OXOXO

      Though I'm willing to take constructive criticism, that is uncalled for in a community like HubPages. Perhaps you would like to peruse my other work and comments.

      Your poems, the first one specially, is amazingly sweet. It immediately brought smile to my face. Great pics too. Words are such great cameras for memories. When your grandson will grow up, it will be such a great snap for him - a glimpse into his childhood, into your memories with this picturesque poem. :) Beautiful.

      Thank you lillian1. Its a wonderful thing to have a good relationship with a grandchild. I've always known that grandparents are either a positive or negative influence in a child's life, but I am understanding the stewardship better now.
