A simple conversation
though, with you it is so much more
drawing circles with our words
jumping through hoops just to understand their meaning
You've spent years watching me grow
yet my simplest accomplishments still astound you
An A? Yes!
Applied to college? Wonderful!
I remember when..., you tell me
and we laugh together
though I don't remember the events you recall
and know I never will
It's a funny thing talking to your grandma
the clash of different times and places
the internet user and one who's never read an email
our differences are immense, large and seemingly impassable
But we overcome them.
We always have.
