I wrote the poem below on the birth
of my first grandchild Josh
who is 19 yrs old today.
This was my second poem I ever wrote:
DEAR jOSHUA, OUR FIRST GRANDCHILD:
Welcome to the world and to our family.
May your life be filled with love
In everything you see.
You have a precious mother
Who will give you love and tender care.
Your father looked so proud of you
As you peacefully slept there.
He too was our first child
Not so many years ago.
And we;re not ashamed to tell you
How we loved him so.
May your life be filled with laughter,
And always wear a smile.
For we're only on this earth,
For just a short while.
So as you grow from baby to toddler,
From boyhood to man.
We'll always remember the first time
We saw you........love from your
Grandad and your Nan.
*Grandad left us just two months later*
From my first book
Negative V. Positive.
