Enthusiasm….that’s the word.
Excited by the very thought
Of something that he’s seen or heard
Or latest gadget that he bought.
I sit there baffled, left behind,
As he explains the latest rage
In application of ‘lectronics.
I’m handicapped somewhat by age.
He’s got a life laid out before him;
I wonder if he comprehends
The world he’s capable of changing
When his days of childhood ends.
For now he’s circled by his family,
To his Sitty, he’s her world.
One day he’ll step out on the carpet
As his future is unfurled.
