A word to describe
A life not planned for.
A baby not appreciated
A man and not a boy.

At dinner thoughts are to be shared
But not by those who are to be seen
And not by those who are not to be heard.

Leave at 18
And don’t you look back
Forget what you saw
And forgive only if you must.

A man not a boy,
But a man loved by a woman,
And a family do they share,
Loved by the members,
And cherished by the community.

A word to describe the wonderful,
Courageous, thoughtful, brilliant man
That is you.

The author's comments:
This is for my Grandpa, I call him Papa, and I love him dearly. I'm so happy he has my Nana (Grandma), as his family did not value him the way we do. He was not planned for, his father did not like him, and I think that led to certain parts that are him. But I love him, and his intelligence, and his knowledge about animals and plants, and this is for him.
