A Grandfather’s Divorce

He never told me when he left her,

 I’d go through a Grandfather’s divorce

 

The kids remote and distant

 all contact scant and forced

 

My love sits idly waiting

 for the phone to ring again

 

Saying “Papa we want to see you”

 but Mommy’s mad at men

 

My heart left cold and broken

 warm wishes unreturned

 

As two children fight to understand

 —a world left dark and burned

 

(Villanova Pennsylvania: March, 2019)
