My grandsons 1st birthday
If you saw his angel face and rosy cheeks
you'd have a smile upon your face for weeks
At the first time that I looked into his face
his bright eyes gazed back at me beaming grace.
With pinkish pale complexion on his skin
(I thought it was a cherub there as I peeked in.)
Jedediah, darling grandson,you are one today
though I've only seen you once (as I live far away)
you have been inside my heart as has your smile
you gave it to me at the start (and I've kept it all the while.)
The hugs of you that day I warmly keep
as I do the joy of walking you 'til your pram lulled you to sleep.
What a wonderful day in Gympie Town
pushing your pram around and 'roun'.
And there in Gympie park your cousins played
with your brother on the slippery-dip
(so very well behaved!)
And your mum and dad an' aunty Jo were there
as we picnicked happily on that day so fair.
Sometimes when heaven touches on my heart
it stirs a love up in me that makes my teardrops start
and so it happened to me on that day, I said 'goodbye'
...then sadly drove away.
The beauty of that perfect day,still makes these blue eyes cry
I guess some folks might stop to wonder 'why?"...
but the joy of meeting you it swelled my heart
(a memory so precious I will never let it part.)
So darling Jedediah on this very special day
remember you are dearly loved by your so-fond, 'Granny-Kay.'

|Kay this is absolutely lovely, it is never easy living so far away from those we love, although maybe it does make the reunions when they happen that little bit sweeter,

|What a better reason is there than to celebrate ones grandchild...it is an experience akin to having that child as one of your own. We as grandparents are so fortunate that way. I celebrate that feeling with you Kay as I know it well.|

|It is so good to see you posting again. And what a wonderful post it is! When your grandson reads this many years from now, a tear will come to his eye as he remembers the times… The many times… He enjoyed with his, Granny Kay.

|Next year granny Kay,

Sweet Jed will be in his terrible 2's.
