For Kayleigh

The doorbell rings and there you stand 
With cheeky smile on lips and in your eyes
Long ginger hair contained by Alice band
Unbridled joy I feel is not disguised

No age since you came upon this earth
An oasis in the storm of life’s woes
Too young were you to see or feel the hurt
Not knowing that to God one love must go

We gave you all our love and then gave more
Did not regret one second of that time 
You repaid our love one thousand times o’er
You made our world a haven so sublime

I see you now leave your youth behind
And amaze with the passing of each year
You will always in our memory be enshrined
Granddaughter fair truly loved so dear
