Loving One Another

Future Cuddles


(Written on my flight back to CA after some 4: AM cuddles with my newborn grandson in Switzerland two decades ago)

Recalling our precious time together,
I wonder about
Future four o'clock cuddles.
Who will be there
In a decade or three?
Where will your bearded cheek
Nuzzle in four decades?

Will your big, round eyes
Remain innocent,
And your heart remain pure,
And with perfect trust,
Will you find the world
Always loves you
As I do?

Wrap your fingers
Around carefully chosen thumbs,
My dear grandson.
The world is yours,
But here
There will always be
A four o'clock cuddle.

  1. You make me miss my grandkids, and I’m blessed to live a half hour away! Do you ever see this grandchild? How you must miss him!

  2. Awwww! This is lovely! And I laughed out loud at the photo you chose of him! He was on fire last night at the Cheese Disco he helped organize. I’m so proud of him!
