smudged faces and happy smiles
by: CJ Heck
Footsteps on the staircase
handprints on the walls
tiny fingers dripping things
up and down the halls.
Voices all in unison
calling out my name
arguing and pointing
and saying who’s to blame.
Dishes in the sink
couch cushions on the floor
clean and dust, then fall in bed
tomorrow will bring more.
Those times are etched in memory
the children now are grown
but I’ll gladly have it all again
when the grandkids all come home.

Such sweet little faces.

They are SO sweet :o)
Lovely to catch up on your posts. I've been away on vacation in Italy. The wedding pictures were so beautiful and the grands are a delight.

What beautiful grandchildren! I love that poem, especially the part where the cushions on the floor. My kids loved taking them off the couch and using them for ANYTHING! You are truly blessed!!
