Granny's Paradise

Each summer after school let out
I’d travel far away
To spend two weeks at Granny’s house
oh how we both would play

My Granny had a secret place
She often shared with me
A garden that turned fantasy                        
Into reality

So magical and wonderful
my Grannie’s paradise
A garden that would come alive   
and catch me by surprise  

Each day it seemed the garden changed
new blossom’s would appear
My Granny would delight in this
sometimes I’d see a deer!

We’d walk along the garden trail
her stories came to life
Sometimes I saw the characters
they smiled as we walked by 

Her heart was filled with melody
I loved to hold her hand
A gentle soul so full of love
I was her little man
