Today I held my granddads hand, he struggles to talk from Parkinson’s and other things from old age, but I wait and listen to make out his words, always as usual calling me beautiful with the biggest smile and so much gentleness, he mentioned my mum, being his first baby, I look a lot like her, she passed away 21 months ago, I could see a few tears in his eyes as he mentioned her and we held hands in silence and he strokes my hand, he looked well today. When I was younger he struggled to accept my rebellious personality and I didn’t like him trying to restrain me, I realise how much he is like my dad in that sense, they say we marry our parents.
What I shared with him today was so special, it was so heart felt and I will cherish it so much, in that moment only him and I existed, I wouldn’t be here today if my granddad didn’t meet my grandmother (bless her soul), he is my last living grandparent and I said to him today, you are the guardian of the family, watching over us with his wisdom. My mum was with me, I could feel her smiling so happily, seeing all the family together as she loved so much, she would be so grateful to my sister for organising this and I’m so humbled and grateful for that experience no matter how brief before I leave overseas. For a moment in time, a gem of pure connection and love shared through generations, he recognised my mom’s engagement ring on my hand and looked at it. I shared with him my reason for wearing it on my engagement finger. He smiled in understanding.
Simple love and touch transcends all else, it’s beyond time, beyond space, experience beyond physical matter.
