Blood

by lovealwayscath

My grandmother’s eyes haunted me.
Filled with unshed tears
Quietly watching the two little girls.
The ghost of her own smile
On her once flawless face
Silently creeps as they laughed
Across the dining table.

My grandfather’s eyes haunted me.
Filled with unshed tears
Excitedly retelling his childhood.
His own wide smile
On his once flawless face
Explodes as he laughed
With her favorite little girl.
