My Precious Grandchild

Small and sweet with eyes that shine

Blessed be this precious gift of mine

Ten tiny fingers and ten such tiny toes

You shall never know a life of woes

Your life I will hold as I would my own

As Jesus does protect your soul, with my prayer each night “Thy will be done”

A new hope you have given, though to small to comprehend

Hurts from the past you have accomplished to mend

Smiles with hope to be carried on shoulders small and fragile

Never to worry, for I will carry them for you my precious grandchild.
