Our grandson Josh used to love to hear his Papa play with his silver dollar that he always carried in his pocket. When Josh turned eight Papa gave him his very own silver dollar to carry in his pocket and someday give it to his grandson.....

A great big coin for your pocket
just like papa has.
Now keep it safe and try not  to lose it
and please never ever hock it!

Although this coin isn't worth near enough
it means so much more than you realize,
along with this dollar you'll grow a little taller
each time you look him in the eyes.

This silver dollar will become a part of you,
and when you're big and tall,
you'll remember the love your granddad
had even when you were so small.
