Driving Back from Grandma’s House Poem


I remember when I was little
We would be coming home
From grandma’s house
And I couldn’t take being in the car anymore
So I would look at the dew drops on the window
And let my eyes blur
So I could see the rainbows in them
And I would go to another place
I don’t remember where it was anymore
But it was a safe place.
