Pity that we are here, dear Jay. Thankfully, my four grandchildren are in that adoring stage where my husband and I are king and queen. I don't know if it will last but it's nice. My granddaughter asked if she could come and stay a thousand days. I hope you get some visitors soon.
Sending you my best today as always,
Sallly xo

This work has reached the exceptional level
I love the words to your poem, You captured my attention from the start I always told my children when they were young be kind care do things for them
in the time of need for the old folk .
Because one day you will be old and wish someone would come a chat awhile and care for you
Thank you for sharing
Cookie

How true this is, Jaybird, we are pushed aside to make way for the more interesting text messages. They don't know what talking to a human is anymore. I had two of my grandchildren come over to see me, and after the first ten minutes, they were on their phones texting some very URGENT messages. Hmm. I'm sorry you are feeling lonely, it's not right that after all we've done for them is so quickly forgotten. We have our family on FS, my friend. Take care. Sandra xxx

This is a very sad poem. I am sorry that your grandkids are not more attentive to you. they really should be. It is their parents fault that they do not come to see you enough. That is disrespectful. You should show them your poetry. You should mail it to them... better yet, text it to them! God bless you my friend. -January L. :)

If your grandkids are lucky enough to live as long as you then they will experience some loneliness I expect, I adore your clever write and it is poignant and well rhymed and my eldest grand daughter who is 16, never speaks to me, only the young ones are interested. Their phones are more interesting than us! Love Dolly x

Excellent, as always--funny and very apt for modern times-I suppose every generation gets caught up in the fast life (more so it seems with telephones these days) but there will come a time of reckoning for them no doubt. Very enjoyable-thanks for the chuckle

All the Best!
Phil

I'm sorry to hear that, Jaybird. I personally don't know if my grand kids would visit when they are grown. I hope you and your wife enjoyed them when they were little. Oh, those cell phones are distracting, aren't they? Also, with the pandemic, people may be not visiting in person to protect your health. Hope you can use Zoom or Skype to meet with them virtually.

but, they're to busy at some mall. (too)

A poignant plea to be seen as well as heard...to be valued as you, no doubt, valued your elders back in the day. We live is a virtual world now. It's all I can do to virtually stand the fact that even my youngest grandchildren would rather text or play some inane game on their phones than think to call and say "Hello-I love you." People allover the world have disconnected from personal communication--I can't help but think one day they will regret not taking the time to stop by, asking us questions about our own childhood, enjoy what they will surely miss--when it's too late to reach out.--Karenina

I am a mite younger than you, born February1940, but I am 200 percent and more with you on this. It is as if you don't belong anymore and that is so very discouraging and sad. Pass a tissue please...Dinah
