My Grandaughter Fills Me With Joy

A

Look of wonder

In her eyes

At

Something new

She

Frowns

In

Concentration

Committed

To

Succeed

And

Determined

To make it work

It’s

Echoed

In her

Enthusiasm

She

Wants to learn

Her

Eyes carefully

Watch me

I am

Guiding and teaching

We’re

Looking and trying

Together

Asking questions

Looking

For answers

She tries

Fails

And tries again

Hooray success

Suddenly

Her

Face lights up

A

Beautiful smile

There before me

So

Radiant

My

Heart overflows with love

We

Laugh

A special moment shared

So

Full of Joy

I can so relate to the joys your granddaughter brings to your life!

When my daughter and granddaughter are with me, reality changes. My daughter has to parent both of us! That's why mud puddles are much more fun when we leave the "old folks" at home!

Movie Master 5 years ago from United Kingdom Author

Hi Tom, it's nice to see you, hope all is well with you.

Grandchildren bring out the 'child' in you, they are so much fun, just last week Sophie and I were messing around in the puddles, great!

Enjoy your grandaughter:-)

Take care and see you soon.
