For Our Grandchildren

We love your little fingers, little toes,

We love your little face, your little nose,

With each new day, your confidence explodes,

Our heartbeat bursting with the love it holds

Your mind enquiring at each new wonder

The world your oyster to quiz and ponder,

The love we feel for you, is such a power

If measured in tonnes, its strength would tower 

We delight at your visit, in your play

The things you do and the things you say

The new words, that new expression, your smile

Our hearts are all smitten in your beguile

Of this love, this feeling no one can spoil

To you our love is steadfast and loyal.

    Amazing lil things ain't they. And the world is theirs to learn and gently take the reins from our hands.

        Grandchildren are wonderful. Thre is a saying "If I knew how great grandchildren are I would have had them before my children!"
