"Child, listen now to this sweet refrain
from an older man with a graying mane.
It's chorus is a life filled tune of passing years,
of unspoken cheers, of dreams and memories kept,
of children's laughter, of toddler’s step,
of gurgling glasses, of happy squeals,
of conversations at family meals,
of silent nights while babies sleep.
These are the things so dear I keep,
remembering the wealth of such riches,
and feel the freshness of loving kisses.
I can see those little prints of hands and feet,
and smile that I thought things had to be so neat,
on cleaned windows or carpet floors,
or crayon art on refrigerator doors,
or tracks by cars or pen upon the wall,
left by little people not so tall,
or special forks and spoons and cups,
for the little folks that I cleaned up,
or child-filled wonder that I did so much,
and hugs that on sleepy mornings woke me up.
So, now the silence of these things
are the songs that make us sing
who rocked the cradle or held their hand
when we were in another land of parenthood,
you see, I knew a younger you with a younger me.

(originally written 1999 by H.R.Grimm)
