    Gone

    I remember weekends with Grammy.
    Soon as I walked through the door she would greet me
    With a smile
    And
    Bend down
    so she could plant a wet kiss
    On my forehead or cheek.
    I would wipe at the spot once she turned her back.
    Today I regret that.
    My Grammy doesn't kiss me anymore
    She can not.

    we often miss what we had once it's gone
    as we learn to treasure such small gentle kisses
    and other things in life ........a learning experience

    Short and sweet. Doesn't take many words to convey a message that hit the target. This one made me feel melancholy poet.
