Grand-daddy Welcomes His Daughters: A Poem
Grand-daddy was what we called him
An important man to us all
His sense of humor was special
He was a giant to me, so tall.
Fishing and cards were his hobbies
Weekends were made for play
The little cabin in the woods
Is where the family stayed.
Giggles and stories filled the rafters
Grand-daddy smiled all the time
His generous nature was his best trait
He would give you his last dime.
Long gone now for many years
He welcomed his girls to his side
They laugh in Heaven, this I know
on beautiful clouds they ride.
I miss them but they’re all together
Laughter on the winds that blow
Father and daughters holding hands
Safe in God’s warm glow.
