Why?

January 8, 2009

Elementary school:
Homemade cookies,
Random gifts,
New toys,
An abundance of love.

Middle school:
Sneering comments,
Left-handed compliments,
Rude glares,
No attention given.

High school:
Excessive hugs,
Generous checks,
Endearing statements,
Too much attention.

Grandma,
What has caused these changes?
You leave me confused,
And now, a time that should be rejoiceful,
Is tainted with fear.
I’ve seen your walking ability retrogress
From wobble, to cane, to practically immobile.
I hope my suspicions aren’t true…
