For long they had waited,
Many years for the patter,
Of little feet and joyful screams,
The morning seemed long from dawning;
Grandma never stopped praying,
Grandpa, too, as much a could be offered,
Then Grandpa left for the heavens,
Soon after, Grandma joined the celestial train;
Not long the news broke,
Adorable bundles of sweetness,
Sounded their cheerful arrivals,
In what remains the wonderment of several decades.
A lady well beyond mid fifties just put to bed twins after several decades of waiting for fruit of the womb. The miracle was announced the day my mother was laid to rest on July 17 2021.
