Bedtime StoryMore Like This
My life's been full of such happy things,
kisses and hugs and cute puppies.
Lizards and gerbils and things with wings,
small fishbowls with tiny guppies.
But what I still treasure most of all,
was bedtime stories with grandpa.
We'd read about creatures ten feet tall,
morphing into somebody's grandma!
My night-times were always exciting,
new worlds to explore, me and him.
The wonders of life so inviting,
sometimes we'd read two on a whim.
My time with my grandpa was fleeting,
I find myself musing 'bout him.
He taught me the true love of reading,
a love that will never grow dim.
