Granddaughter

For our Granddaughter-Fayth-

You came to us from the island and you brought
 
to us a youthful innocence-filled with adventure-

a life that measures the earth with your heart-
 
You brought also the sweetness of your smile-

the honey that bursts into light-

I have seen no eyes so bright as yours-

no heart so sweet-nor such gentle kindness-

I have seen nothing so alive
 
as your begining journey through life-
   
Now you know-granddaughter-how much we love you-

and that for us-you are the brightness that
 
bursts and bears the flower of spring-

you are the fragrance of a garden in
 
the pathway of our lives-
  
I place my heart to earth and hear you-

I hear your laughter and your excitement

of life and adventure-You are a-Little

butterfly-sweet and sure-Grandpa Gord-
