Tomorrow is your birthday
We just talked and did all the well wishes on the phone
But during my ride home I started thinking of you
My memories of us, of you
(Did I break a comma rule there?)
So let me rattle a few off young girl…
The water at Fort Eustis is freezing
And you can swim for a long time.
Scrambled eggs are good
But yours are AMAZING!
Banana seats on bikes are rough
You had the right idea with the hammock gizmo
“Fantasy Island” and “Starsky and Hutch”
Weren’t as good as I thought, nor
As bad as you believed
Writing feels great
And thank yous are important
Your kids, especially the oldest,
Turned out pretty good
Madonna has nothing on you
When it comes to changing styles and reinventing herself
Hopefully she will have learned a thing about class
When she’s ninety three
I love you, Grandmom.
