every first is worrisome
may be marriage
or birth of a son
or the fist one to have become
a parent under the sun

the first one to have a grand child
so mild
maybe a grand son or grand daughter
it should not really matter
but first worry of the parent is natural
as the child is the miracle
the first one ever
for you me or anyone
on this occasion
we shan't add death
its bad
a human ransom

I want the raw truth, feel free to knock me on my back
Editing stage: 


that my poem "Worry" may have inspired this one a little. Anyway that is neither here nor there, because this poem is complete in its own right and neatly defines the way we tend to think we're the first person to go through certain life-changing experiences. The novelty of being a grand parent hasn't really sunk in yet in my case, perhaps because I've only seen the baby in photos.
Best wishes,

I was there
second too
third and fourth
I nearly helped
as the doc did deliver
I was standing at call
yes ur poem inspired me
and glad you have taken it sportingly
poets love glee
together live happily

that is what in
we all sea
so be happydon't worryso said
