Book of Life...No Charge!


To Marie..My Special Book
Together, once again and we go down memory lane.
Recapturing, the special moments of fun and pain.
Turning back the pages of time, we read those fears,
Those mysteries, excitement, many laughter and tears.
Your youthful touch, helped avoid the many a frown,
Because of your love, strength, that never let us down.
Grown, a young lady, many a rainbow you boldly chase
Steadily with dignity, quality and with good grace.
Wondrous miracle, wisdom beyond your youthful years
Your courage never did fail ever, as you dried my tears
Oh that cuddlesome baby, sweet smile, a pleasant breeze,
What a perfect joy, love in abundance always did increase
Treasured deep in my heart, I gently, proudly unfold.
This chapter in my life, that my heart so lovingly do hold
Is the beautiful story, my angelic granddaughter and me
It’s the best of books with no charge I lend to you to see….
