Grandpa’s Front Porch

2018 November Moyer's Front Porch 001.JPG

Recalling an amazing moment many years ago

Looking forward to seeing Grandpa—let’s go!


Sitting on his front porch for endless times

Allowing a special grandson to feel so fine


Bouncing on Grandpa’s knee was such fun

Laughing and giggling until there was none


Seeing Grandpa’s old, rustic rocking chair

Bringing back memories of us being a pair


Enjoying another warm, yet peaceful summer night

Listening to Grandpa’s stories, full of fun and fright


Watching the fireflies dancing above the tall, green grass

Hearing through the screen door, radio shows long past


Observing neighbors walking down an endless sidewalk

Pausing to spend a magic moment with us while we talk


Tasting Grandma’s freshly baked, sweet treats

Arousing taste buds and sweet tooth to meet


Spending time together for an hour or maybe two

Witnessing life from a porch presents quite a view


Sitting in the proud and mature rocking chair once more

Observing the years have been generous and restored


Smiling now as the porch hasn’t changed too much

Adding a new floor with fresh paint as a final touch


Recalling Grandpa on this comforting porch

Carrying on for him, with a brightly lit torch


Passing on an ageless and honored family tradition

Listening again to Grandpa’s most favorite renditions


Filling childish lives with memories of nurturing love

Lifting thoughts upward to Grandpa in heaven above
