To My Grandson

 

The sunshine of your precious smile

could melt the coldest heart.

It brightens up my dreary day

when we are far apart.

The memory of your little hand

holding mine so tight

brings a warm glow to my heart

on a cold and dreary night.

Those little arms that hug my neck will

soon be big and strong; you're growing up

so quickly so it won't be very long.

So I'll take your hugs and kisses now,

cause the day will soon be here,

when you'll think you're much too big,

for me to hold so near.
