U Tend To 4get

U tend to 4get
How short
Our time really is.
Sitting…
Listening…
To the
When I get older stories
From the mouths of our children.
With broad eyes
With such excitement
With unquestionable visions of u being around 4ever.
Damn…
I want to live 4ever…
I’ll deal with the aches  and pains
That come with age
As long as I can see the smiles
On my children’s children’s faces

  3. So true. Its amazing how children give you such drive to do whatever it takes and suffer through what you must just to see them grow healthy and extend the family even futher. Children are a blessing and family is a beautiful thing.

  10. I like the last line. The trade off of seeing those smiles is pretty great, though my 96 year old father would love to have his sight to go with the wrinkles!

  16. Thanks for this great one. . it “hit the spot” in my heart today that needed a little nudge of happiness.

    I’m still wondering if you are the same Craig Watson I know from way back when in Connecticut. If you are, you would definitely know my name, so I’m assuming you are not!

    I wish you enough. . .

  17. What a great poem. I can relate to the sentiment to such an extent that reading this had a profound effect on my emotions. The title of my blog http://wordsofamidlifecrisis.blogspot.com is a reflection of the stage I am at in life. A stage where I often ponder life and the speed at which it flows and where it’s going etc, etc.

    Thanks for sharing this wonderful poem 🙂

  25. It’s worth the wait, Craig. But then your children move–or you move–and you only get to see those smiles once in a while.
