Dear Angel, Joseph Alexander

Updated on August 5, 2012

Today is August 4th, 2012...

Why do we write for Joseph Alexander? It just came to us, like a heartfelt need to write for Effer's grandson. Our blessings to a great soul that have touched us all : Paula A.K.A "Effer"

To the Sweetest Little Angel..!

Joseph Alexander a king's name

You came at this very end of July

to change grandma's life

Life went by and now all seem so right

Garden of Roses from the sky

coming down the rosary that is within sight

Precious baby, that hold grandma's fingers so tight

be proud and get stronger to save this human race

Little angels rejoice at last

You came to bless grandma's heart

even though she hates that Facebook account

Great grand daddy Eddie smiling when you suck that thumb

Bless your heart from little cousin that had to depart

you are going to be a strong young man

taking care of grandma and her HubPages fans

Heritage and pride, is in your DNA and clan

We hope to shake your hand fine young man

whether a President or a commander in charge

You will carry grandma's perspective of life

witty, clever and ready to show us the biggest smile

A salute from little angels that came to say hi

from Ukraine, Austria, New York, oh my!!

Your blood has a legendary past, sweet angel of true

Ed, Fred, and God per se.... blessings to you!

Little Joseph Alexander, that came into this world to seek the truth

rest assure that you will be a man that will see us through

Guardian angels will protect your blood

because is written, you will be a man of God.

    Such a tribute to a wonderful grandmother, and the baby in the picture is beautiful. He will love his witty and sweet grandmother, as I have laughed and cried reading her hubs.

    What a wonderful poem for Joseph and I hope he will read it one day. You have spread your words of joy for such an Angel of a boy.

    Thanks for sharing,

    Your Hub Friend,

    After reading Fpher's hub about her grandson, I must say this is a beautiful and painful tribute. You owe me a box of Kleenex! You are a beautiful soul and it shines through.

    Hi Rasma, Effer is a proud grandma for sure. New babies change lives and give us hope. Thanks for the bkind words. Paula and family must be so proud.

    @KJForce, we just felt like writing a tribute to a little angel. We are parents and we know how it feels. You always coming back to us. Thanks for that loyalty.

    @ Pamela99, you said better than us. The miracle of life at its best... and the reason for us to stay put. These little angels grow to be the most precious gift from above. We are ahppy for you Effer.

    @Hi Ruby, this poem was dedicated to fpherj48's grandson, a hubber friend we knew from the beginning in here. Sure she is a proud grandma, who should be busy taking pictures and all. Thanks to all for reading us!

    Lord, What a treasure a newborn baby is and your poem is beautiful. A strong man with a strong heritage is who he will become. God will bless this young man as he will bless you all.

    Hi Debbie, We are just normal folks with a pen. We felt inspired and wrote this piece for a future citizen of the world. We never know who is going to lead this senseless planet into a bearable existence . Thanks for your heartfelt compliment anyway.

    Hi Paula, you said you were interested in hearing from us. For some reason we wanted to write this poem for your grandson, and we understood what was in your soul. Spreading the love to one another can change this merciless world. Not going to talk about polka dolka stuff, just be as good as we want to be. I don't know how Maria Jordan mixes Francais, country red neck slang and rock and roll. Thanks for writing back, and hope to read you soon...!

    Faith Reaper, you are a wonderful grandma and know better that anyone how these angels come into our lives for a reason. Your spirituality and your faith have changed so many of us, for good. Hope you are feeling better and thanks for moving us with your words. God bless!

    Now I'm speechless Paula. What can I tell you. There is a hidden reason that started 3 days ago, then Maria left a comment on your Haiku. Peace came to us as friends....then this piece of poetry? Money is not the reason, is just a celestial plan, and we just abode. And you love so much your family and your kids.... God bless you! and baby Joseph Alexander as well!!

    P.S. No angels were harmed in the production of this series...!

    Hi Josh, this is a proof that our community has a heart. We all make this site different from others. You, as a young fellow hubber can notice the heartfelt comments toward newcomers and friends with no end. We wanted to surprise Effer with this poem. She is a great grandma, and we know deep in her heart there is a rebirth. God bless to that little angel. Thanks for stopping by Josh.

    Hi Maria Jordan, You are the negotiator of this world. Seems that Paula got the surrpise of her life. We felt like writing this piece for Effer, with some unexplainable reason. Our mind was ready and we went for it. Even though we were heading to a Job waiting for us... we kept on writing, for this precious angel. Thanks for leaving such a heartfelt comment Maria.

    Joseph, that is so sweet. Something he will treasure always. If we all were exalted with our entrance into the world like that we probably won't need so many therapists. LOL. Great job.
