old with new
so lively and youthful photographing his surroundings
every wrinkle in his face represents
strides--of the long way hes traveled.
his hair pearly white,
his blue eyes as deep as the sea
looking straight at me,
so content, kind and happy--
why, he just sew his first granddaughter marry!
happy to BE married for 52 years,
happy to have a family after loosing his.
full of love, full of life
he strides with such grace through the crouds.
always a good word- pessimism unheard (of)!
83 and looks so free,
free of regret, free of self blame,
simply grateful to have lived.
he watched the world evolve,
there seems there is no problem he cannot solve,
how I aspire to have his resolve
