The Blissful Couple

The Blissful Couple
by Judith Viorst
(from her collection of poetry Suddenly Sixty)

They laugh together.
Read together.
Paint together.
Listen to music together.
Walk, holding hands, together.

They love exchanging

He rushes to greet her,
His arms outstretched,
Joyfully calling her name,
When he sees her arrive.

Who, you are wondering,
Is this blissful couple?
She is his grandma.
He is almost five.

Here I am with the other half of my Blissful Couple on our
Christmas Morning date!

I'm linking this to Lisa's linky party over at Grandma's Briefs.
Check out the fun!

The words "blissful couple" described the relationship between grandparents and grandchildren perfectly.

I love the poem and the idea that you are a blissful couple. Nothing better than the kind of bliss you find with your grands.
