One day as she was leaving,
she said you didn’t say, “I love you.”
That’s always been our custom
and we both know that it’s true .
She’s my very first granddaughter,
my love has never wavered.
The feelings I’ve always had for her
are truly to be savored.
Occasionally we are occupied,
or have other things on our mind,
we might lose our concentration,
but there’s no intent to be unkind.
As she travels through her life,
there will be times of disappointment.
That’s a two way street,
as are our times of enjoyment.
“You don’t stop loving someone
because you’ve had a disagreement.
You don’t even stop loving them,
after their internment.
No matter where life takes her,
we’re blood and always will we be.
She’ll always know her Grampy loves her
as I know,,,, she’ll always love me.”
Life has peaks and valley’s
from which we must recover.
Yet, nothing she could ever do
could cause me to un-love her.
