On Grandpa’s Lap

I spy white spots on your beard
Has it always been there?
Your head’s a bit shinier
And there are gaps in your hair.

When you smile there’s a crinkle
How do I make it smooth?
And oh my, can this be true?
Do I see a missing tooth?

Heavy glasses have left marks
On both sides of your nose
There are rough parts on your hands
And even on your toes.

You tell me some things have changed
But your warm eyes disagree
Your treats, tricks, and tickle fights
For me, you’re Mr. Energy!
