The World I Leave Behind


The possibility

The hope

And the potential

Of the world I leave behind

I can see.

I met with a young child recently.  When asking about her relationship with a grandparent I asked what she enjoyed doing with her grandparent.  She said “hang out”.  I told her that was nice, and I hoped my grandchildren would one day say that about me.  She looked me dead in the eye and said “they won’t”.

I am sure there is humor in there somewhere!
