Merry Christmas-Existence of love

Existence of love.

A Poem by Coyote Poetry


For dear Grandparent missed.


Existence of love.

Ice cream with a cherry.
A safe warm house.
A big yard to play in.

Kind smiles and gentle words.
Missed in my old age.
Dear Grandmother told me before I left for war.
“Too many had died in our family in war.  Better to be a live chicken
than a dead hero.”

Grandfather laughter and wise words.
I wished I listen to them more.
Wrote down every one.

Old age had overcome me.
I hear my grandfather voice when I speak.
I have learned kindness and patience.

65 years together.
Dear Grandparent taught me what love was and it existence.

Have an open door for kids.
Be the safe place for the children to feel safe.
Love is the way.

The existence of love is in our thoughts and actions.
I want to be like my dear grandparent.

Give my grandchildren ice cream with a cherry.
Have a safe place to rest.
Be the gentle voice in a mad world.


This is what love is.
