A Marvin X poem for Blue in Green by. Miles Davis

When we see grandchildren
calling us grandfather so sweetly
full of innocence purity
their wisdom is most surprising
it confounds us
this world they know
we know not
we stare in wonder
their pronouncements
letting us know they see our
Jahmiel tells me
"Flow wit da flow Gpaw
didn't you say flow wit da flow
so flow wit the flow Gpaw."

When we see them
death does not bother us anymore
we know death has no power
except the friend of eternity
we see eternity before our eyes
so we hug and kiss them
squeeze them tightly
as they enter this world
as we depart through the door
of no return.
--Marvin X
