Sleeping Candy

He had a very special
jar filled with old
fashioned sugar
stick candy
Mixed flavors in
green, yellow, and pink
the soft melty kind
Sleeping Candy
he called it
My favorite was
yellow – lemony
He gave a piece
each night to
his grandchildren
when they
I was just the
little girl from
across the road
I always got
one too
He was more than 
my neighbor…
He was the
grandfather I 
didn’t have
