Week 11 – To My Grandma

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.
