To My Granddaughter


My wishes for my Grandchildren.
This poem was a third place Blue Mountain Arts winner and is published.

To My Granddaughter

What can I wish you, little one, to make your life worthwhile
A summer's day with butterflies, an Angel's gentle smile
A new-found friend to share your toys and fun-filled days galore
A birthday treat with funny clowns, balloons and so much more

A good night kiss to calm your fears when all your playtime ís done
Tiny fingers clasped in prayer and morning's golden sun

Cows that moo and dolls that cry and teddy bears that speak
Candy Land and pick-up sticks and little balls that squeak

The ice cream truck's melodic chimes, enticing you with treats
Popsicles running down your cheeks, delicious sticky treats
A rainbow's magic colors to enchant you after rain
A puddle to reflect your face and make you laugh again

All this and my undying love to last you through the years
My wish I give you for all time, much laughter and few tears

A pocketful of colored dreams --sparkling clean and bright
Stars to shine when darkness comes to brighten up your night

Loved ones to surround you with cloaks of love and laughter
This special wish I give to you for now and ever after.


This poem was written for some very special children
--the Grandchildren who touch our lives and our hearts
