To My Forebears

I want to call you,

Grandma, Grandpa, Mom, and Dad,

when I have good news.

I want to call you

and hear you say one more time,

“I’m so proud of you!”

I want to tell you, “Thank you

for helping me on my way!”

    1. Thank you, Lance, for your beautiful and perceptive comment. I have cried only twice in six years. Once was while trying to read this poem aloud to my significant other. I appreciate that you felt what I was trying to communicate. All the best. Cheryl
