Grandpa’s Heart
(Grandpa Poems)

News of you has
taught me more ..
I know now what
a long life’s for.

I’ve found through you
my magic heart ..
The kinder, gentler
patient part.

While I waited those
months for you ..
I reflected on
the things we’d do.

I would be your
special friend ..
Have secrets to share
and pennies to spend.

I would tell you
of the past ..
Leave you memories
that would always last.

I would grant
your every wish ..
Like bigger scoops
in your ice cream dish.

I would be
your biggest fan ..
The one cheering loudest
from the stands.

I’d play games
of make believe ..
Pull magic tricks
from up my sleeve.

I’d take lots
of photographs ..
And be generous
with smiles and laughs.

The first time you
were in my arms ..
I felt the miracle
of your charms.

I placed your newborn
hand in mine ..
And understood
the gift of time.

Tender feelings
are hard to express ..
Grandchild, it is me
you’ve blessed.

Your life gives me
another chance ..
A youthful heart
and eyes that dance.

News of you
has taught me more ..
I know now what
a long life is for.

I give to you
the magic part ..
Of your Grandpa’s
loving heart.
