Waiting For Love

You came out of the house
Met me in the driveway
House dress flapping around on your skinny legs

You hugged me

You didn’t look like my Grandmother
Didn’t act like my Grandmother
Certainly bore no resemblance to my mother’s mother

I think of that moment
Nearly every time I think of you

You have become that sunny day in the driveway
I’ve opted not to wait
Until I have a grandchild
