Like I Did

My grandpa used to often tell me
Grandma was the apple of his eye
I didn't know why he always told me that
When I fell in love I knew why.

My grandparent's are both gone now
But they live inside my heart and mind
The love I have for my wife, like their love
Is a love that will last all my lifetime.

One future day I'll tell my grandchildren
Their grandma is the apple of my eye
They might wonder why I'll tell them that
Until one day, like me, they'll know why.

Like I did....
