There is somethng to be cherished
in a Grandfather's smile,
as he holds the most precious, his grandchild.
To hear the gurgles and the clucks,
softly sounded to gain attention,
to give interest and re-assurance
and to ease the child as he is cuddled.
Grandmother's too exhibit pride;
Enjoy showing off the most beautiful grandchild.
Whether boy or girl you will often find
her joy is shown in every smile.
Nature in its wonder has given
the most natural of instinct
to nurture and to encourage growth
to see progress from those first steps after birth.
Mothers and Fathers; Mums and Dads,
Who can share in the wonder of their child's development
to include the better parts of care and concern,
To foster success and help them to learn.
Their role as parents the most important
to set them right on their path through life.
They will soon grow enough
so enjoy the challenge and the reward of helping them
Grandparents can offer support.
They provide the child care when a rest is required.
A change is often one of the best gifts
A couple may enjoy and find a release
to give them that break to renew their focus.
At the end of the day or at the end of the night
they may kiss their grandchild and say a welcome goodnight
As they return to their own self contained respite.
