This little child will know the love of a Grandfather.

The bond between a Grandfather and grandson is a special learing experience.

Grandpa's Love

This little child has a place in my heart that only a child can see
where patience, love and tenderness will never cease to be.
A place where understanding lives and kindness guides the way
a helping hand with lots of smiles and laughter every day.

This little child will know the love of a Grandpa filled with pride
a gentle touch, a whiskery kiss; with tickles on the side.
A game to play, a song to sing, some time to fly a kite
a lesson in the golden rule and learning wrong from right.

A tear to share, some time to dream, a hug that’s really tight
a rainy day, a baseball game, perhaps a childish fright.
This little child will come to know that Grandpa’s love is real
and given with a guarantee that no one else can steal.

My days are short; I cannot stay, there’s other work to do
for God will call me home with Him and I must say adieu.
This little child will grow to know what God has given me
a special love; a Grandpa’s love that only a child can see.

I guess I'm a senior citizen since AAR...(more)

I never knew a Granpa's love, as they had passed by the time I was born, but if your love for your grandchild/children, is anything to go by, I have indeed missed out on so much....Another wonderful, heartfelt poem, Joe, your poetry is a joy for me to read, I am so glad that you are sharing it my friend...

These are love-binding lines between a grandpa and his grandson.
"a whiskery kiss; with tickles on the side."

I like the way you used these words.
