Grandpa ~ A Collaboration by GeorgeForFun and Ax

No weekend visits to grandpa’s house
No fishing trips to his favorite lake
No lessons on how to tie a knot
No funny stories of a youth long gone

Blessed to have grandkids in his life
Their favorite place is in the yard
Teaching them lessons of value
A voice filled with patience and love

No Sunday meal, after church
No ice cream parlor treats
No walks to the park
No naps under the old oak tree

Every day meals shared as one
Designing homemade ice to slurp and taste
Daily treks shared in Natures beauty
His recliner becomes the napping post

No tricks played on grandma
No childish pranks encouraged
No sounds of laughter heard
No sounds of life remembered

Grandma would be proud to be punk’d
Fate had a different plan for her and us
Older cousins teach them humor and wisdom
The sounds of youthful love…evokes Happiness

No bath time games
No bed time stories
No good night prayers
No good morning hugs

Slipping and sliding among the toys
Readings of stories made before their births
Prayers of hope and blessings drift on pillows
Bedtime and Morning hugs need no sounds

No one to call grandpa
No one to embrace
No one to love
No memories of a legacy

Right before the mass, hugging begins
Calling out Opa! music to his ears
Without sound they still feel his heart
Memories of love stored in grandpa’s eyes

A Collaboration By George and Ax

If you know George, an introduction is not required because he is without a doubt the kindest man alive. He can rival Santa…and that rainbow colored beard, is actually cooler than white
If you do not know George, do yourself a favor and visit his site linked above or HERE!!!
Get to know this generous soul. He is a devoted family man and he has more kids than the Brady and Partridge families combined.
I never met my grandpa. I would hope he would be George.

George, thank you, this is humbling for me. Thank you for your kindness and thank you for sharing your busy time with all of us.

  1. Ax, through you I see where I took so much for granted. Through George, I see where I could celebrate it all. I’ve wanted to do a piece about my grandfathers, perhaps this is time. ❤️💕❤️ Cara

    The credit for this creation goes to Ax. Most know I am infrequently posting any original work, there’s so many more talented writers that I fully appreciate and enjoy. I hope you can “feel” the emotions that flow from these words. Ax, thank you so much for your kind words and this idea. I love how it evolved from an idea into this reality. TY again. I wish everyone enjoys this collaboration.

    1. Thank you, Ax is way too humble about his part of this. He’s the artist from deep in his heart and soul. I am humbled and honored to be a part of this.
