There's no better place
to take a nap
than snuggled up
on Grandma's lap.
She finger sings the spider
up the water spout to me,
and I sit feeling sleepy,
while sitting on her knee.
She softly counts my fingers,
and then she counts my toes.
A yawn escapes from my mouth,
and my eyes begin to close.
Soon I'm drifting off to sleep
with dreams floating in my head.
I snooze and sigh with contentment,
when Grandma's lap is my bed.
What a delightful poem that captures Grandma’s love!ReplyDelete

when I was 5 years old, I once asked my grandmother to accompany me to the toilet, and at that time it was dark because at night, then I was afraid. but grandma said, calm down there is a grandmother beside you. That is a moment that I cannot forget to this day. I'm glad to have you as my friendReplyDelete
Sounds like a cozy place!ReplyDelete
You didn't blogging quite a while....ReplyDelete

Thank you, Tanza. Yes, we are well and doing fine. The busy-ness of everyday life keeps me from blogging as much as I would like.Delete
