Remembering Grandpa

As my words come slowly now,

I must struggle to speak somehow.

Age and advanced years are here,

I barely recognize those who are near.

Their tears keep falling, not sure why,

tell me a joke, don’t make me cry!

The stroke took much, but I sustain;

for humor, food and love remain.

Be happy when you visit me,

I lived not in sorrow, but joyfully!
