Wandering The Gift

Here is a beautiful poem written by granddaughter, inspired by visits with her grandmother diagnosed with dementia.

Wandering The Gift

by Michelle Villanueva


she smiles wistfully as though green

dances along some bright field

alive in mind yet lost to time’s dull grasp


these moments more precious than lace

gracing the table where jokes and hot cocoa

years ago warmed thick winter afternoons


hers remains the power of lilac petals

overflowing with hope for the spring rains


tell me the story of those sunlit streams

I whisper her laughter the sound of tiny birds


with care as the steady clouds she holds my hand

teases of lilac scent the air as we wander past

It’s not too late to get a great Holiday Gift
