I Walked Into The Ancient Resthome

Old, Blank, Staring
Old, Wierd, Gross

I Tried To Talk To My Adoptive Grandparent

Old, Smelly, Grouchy
Old, Mean, Stubborn

I Soon Left But Could Not Leave The Image
Again, Again I Went Back To Visit His Wisdom

Old, So Very Old
But So Very Wize
And So Interesting

He Became Less Stubborn

Old Became Fun, Wildly Entertaining
Old Became Funny, Filled With Laughter

We Became Friends My Adoptive Grandparent

Old Became Wise, Inspiring
Friendly And Full Of Kindness
Soon Both Less Lonely With Life

Now I Am Many Years Older
My Friend Has Passed On

But His Wisdom Continued To Impact My Life
