TO DAY IS A GREAT DAY:

TO DAY IS A GREAT DAY:
 
Today started like any others of late,
Shoulders full of pain.
I sat down after my breakfast,
And shed a few tears....again.
 
By lunch time all was changed,
I will tell you the reason why.
The doctor arrived to do my shots,
This time tears of relief I did cry.
 
Then the mail man arrived,
With a card for me.
It was from three of my grandchildren,
For years I have not seen.
 
They sent me a "Thank You" card,
For their Easter cash I sent.
Each one wrote about their futures
News that was Heaven sent.
 
The eldest Josh, who will be 18 soon,
The Navy he hopes to join.
My grand daughter Lara who will be 15 in May,
She has great plans already sown.
 
She would like to be an Egyptologist
And Arabic she is already learning.
I didn't realise how much of their life I had missed,
I wish the bridges wasn't still burning.
 
Thomas is going to write me a letter,
To let me know how he is getting on.
It's been a wonderful day  so far,
I must go and telephone my son John.
