In pure elation joy is near and dear
With two granddaughters and a grandson here.
Their sounds of laughter fills me with delight,
Playing games with them far into the night.
At years of twelve and ten, two are in school.
With baby, we swim in my daughter’s pool.
They love to share thoughts and dreams with me.
When they ask my advise I'm filled with glee.
I’ve taught them the Lord’s Prayer to say each night.
My worries flee when they’re within my sight.
When they’re away dark clouds just form a haze,
My sweethearts bless me in so many ways.
On piano, bongo, and flute they play,
A cacophony of sounds, their way.
There’s many countless songs that we have sung.
I’m joyful grandchildren keep this old heart young.
