My first grand daughter was only two when I wrote this…

I love to play with my grand daughter,
She fills my life with joy.
We laugh and play together,
We have lots of fun with her toys.
~
We say little nursery rhymes,
Like humpty fell from the wall.
Or this little piggy went to market.
This piggy got nothing at all.
~
We watch TV together,
Like Teletubbies or Blues clue.
We count and say our letters,
We play games like peek-a-boo.
~
Before we know it’s time for bed,
So she can rest for the night.
So we say her prayers together,
Then I kiss her and turn out her light.
~
Then I whisper “I Love You”
As she drifts off to sleep.
She’s the best gift god has given me,
I think she’s really neat.

    They are the greatest gifts, aren’t they? I have 5 granddaughters 2–5-7-7-12 and 2 grandsons 3 and 14. Each have their own special personalities and I love them all.

    A very sweet poem this is about your grand-daughter. It has love and good words, and it tells a mini story. Well done with your love for her.

    By the way, check some of my poems on the site; you might like some. I will be glad if you do.
