We love our children dearly but our grandchildren
are very special. They remind us of our own
grandparents, our childhood, of when we first became
parents - the generations of family.
Our first grandchild nestled, asleep on my arm,
So tiny, so perfect, so peaceful and warm,
Tenderness welled and I felt the tears start
As the downy head rested in trust on my heart.
Where have the years gone? How time has flown!
Our children are adults with babes of their own,
The future, untravelled, is yours, little one,
May love guide life's journey so newly begun.
