Danny Boy - Poem by Bobbi Myers

My grandson, I have yet to meet
That matters not to me.

For, even though I've seen you not
My mind and heart can see.

I wonder if your like your mom?
Do you now have blonde hair?

Or are you like your uncle?
Once had hair, now none is there?

I wonder if you softly cry
Or belt cries from your lungs?

Do you like hearing lullabies?
Just like your mom was sung?

I wonder if your smiling back
At faces, now you see

Though, sadly, I will never know
Together, we won't be.

I dream of you, and your sweet face
In dreams, I watch you sleep.

And, in those precious dreams I have
Are thoughts I'll always keep.

So, though you know me not at all
Perhaps, one day we'll know

But, meanwhile in my heart you'll stay
And, I won't let you go.
