What Is a Grandchild?

A grandchild is special and a part of you
Someone to share and love through and through
Someone who may be tame, but somewhat wild
But a very dear and precious child
The world will welcome him/her with open arms
Most definitely the world will be wiled by their many charms
The days will be filled with anxiety, laughter, food and sleep
Maybe mom and dad will get a moment's peace
Little one, you will find yourself, but it takes time
Mom and dad, be patient and everything will work out fine
The most important thing is you will be loved
and taken care of well by all
And your job is to grow up to be kind, think of others
and try not to fall
You will always be given advice, direction and restriction
Take it with grace and do not consider it a conviction
We will always be there for you and love you for whoever
and whatever you want to be
Even if your life's ambition is to just sit in a tree
Do it well
