ONE SMALL STEP?
Thursday is my daughter's birthday,
On Sunday her husband's too.
I posted off their cards yesterday
Also a letter for grandson Harry
I rarely see in view.
I put some cash with his letter,
Saying I hope you're well and having fun.
Knowing that just recently
The school summer holidays had begun.
Tonight a text message arrived,
It was from Harry , thanking me for his cash.
Loving the time off school,
He was off to meet his friends in a flash.
He hoped that I was keeping well,
Also said I haven't seen you for so long.
Is this one small step I wonder?
As my heart was beating strong.
I hope it is one small step
But let's not jump ahead.
It cheered me no end tonight.
And happily I'm off to bed.
