The Game Of Life
Dust settled on the chessboard,
the queen and king no longer dance,
through the square green patches on the board.
The gardens are silent with sadness.
The little boy waited for them to awaken
and play hide and seek with the knight and the bishop.
his mentor gone.
He remembered the wisdom taught,
the lessons of defeat ,
and the triumph of victory.
His grandpa's wisdom,
about the art of living.
His instruction of the game,
The boy became a man,
as he reached for the stars,
as he jumped over the hurdles of life,
he whispered under his breath, " checkmate. This one is for you grandpa."
