To My Grandma
I love to listen to you speak Spanish.
It sounds like music in my ears.
Your voice curls like a gift around my hands,
And my heart warms with Cuban sun.
I am glad your hands reached my mom’s and hers can reach mine, so I can reach back to you again.
I will forever try to be a granddaughter you are proud of.
You taught me a love that knows no bounds.
Sometimes, I could spend hours just listening to the music of the love in your voice.
