Twinkle in Your Smile

You raise us up in the air

Our laughter gives us joy

Your smile widens

Our happiness brightens

The first time we see

The twinkle in your eye

 

Your visits overflow with our accomplishments

We sing

We draw

Piano keys are graced with our fingers

Your joy rises and brings

A twinkle in your eye

 

Time goes on

We both grow

Visits become less

But once we see each other

We yell out your name

Length of time is all but forgot

All that matters is

The twinkle in our eyes

 

Pain has a stronghold on us

Now that you’re gone

But our memories must endure

We will remember

The strength you gave

The happiness you bestowed

All of this we will recollect

With a twinkle in our eye

In remembrance of my grandfather, Elwood Ashe
