Grandpa’s Front Porch

2018 November Moyer's Front Porch 001.JPG

Remembering an amazing time 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 as 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 with a 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 offers quite a view

Finding and sitting in the old rocking chair once more

Seeing that the years have been kind and restored

Smiling now as the porch hasn’t changed too much

Adding a new floor with fresh paint and such

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 favorite renditions

Filling young lives with memories of nurturing love

Lifting thoughts up to Grandpa in heaven above
