Consumed With Love,
Loves first Kiss
Looking through the bars, what do I see?
the most delicious blue eyes looking back at me,
That cherished smile I have become to know so well,
with that skin so fair, so soft that everyone can tell.
That kneeling here is where I want to be,
looking through those bars so everyone can see,
that small clenched fist held up to the dawns light,
of fairies you dream of well into the night.
The smell of talc, so perfumed and so clear,
it's all to much strain, but makes me stay here.
Beside your side, I will always want to be,
to cherish you now for all eternity.
I will watch you grow, my heart so full of pride,
my feelings for you I shall never be able to hide,
to protect you for all the days are long,
to stay with you always and sing you my song.
Oh grandson be a happy little boy,
your nana only wants to share your joy,
as the countryside awakes, with birdsong trill and bright,
nana will guide you and teach you wrong from right
All my love I will give to you each and every day,
soft whispers, loving touches I will send all your way,
and when I am gone, my legacy you will hold
so close to your heart and in your hands, tiny and cold
that everyone will see just how precious you are,
looking through the window at the world out there, so far,
Little boy in your innocence many stories will be told,
nana will save you from this world and turn you from the cold,
sitting at your cot side, looking through the bars,
nana will keep you warm and away from all that harms.
