Grandchildren


A ring on the doorbell, a bang on the door
They both rush past me, coats on the floor!
“Hi-ya Granddad” and “Nanny” they shout
The books and the toys now have to come out.
The T.V goes on and some music to gel
They start to argue and things don’t go well
So Nanny starts baking and Carys is there
After only five minutes the biscuit tins bare!
But Will stays with Granddad, just kicking a ball
He’s really growing he’s getting quite tall
We all stop for tea now, some quiet at last
The cake’s really lovely, we’ve all had a blast!
Can we sleep here tonight Nan? –“You know we’ll be good”
“We’re not really naughty just misunderstood!”
So to keep everyone happy we both agree
But, in your own beds mind and not in with me!
So in your pyjamas and off up to bed
The love of our lives now let it be said
We reflect on our day with much love and much joy
We love you so much, our girl and our boy!
