The Light of Leah Little Legs

Her laughter sparkles with a golden shimmer
Even the dog smiles
A sound that visits with a draining delight
Brings a warming light
Like a fireball chasing the gloom
A dervish whirling
Through every corner of the room
Finding memories scribbled on a wall
Of an earlier time
When sunshine came round to call
And a reminder of times yet to play
Nature’s cure for the creeping years
And eternally creeping grey
Lines on the corner of eyes
Pointing like an arrow at that spark
Highlighting the light inside
Instead of the years they had begun to mark
A living, breathing elixir
A spiritual lift
A Granddaughter
Life’s greatest ever gift

One thought on “The Light of Leah Little Legs

  1. Beautiful! I feel like I can sympathize with the way your paint a picture of the importance of having a granddaughter. And the gift that it is. And I don’t have any grandchildren, let alone kids! 🙂
