A POEM FOR ALICE LUCY
We cannot know in future time,
What love will bring forth.
But we do know love brings happiness.
And it is through love and happiness,
That I have written this poem today.
To celebrate the birth of my beautiful
Grandaughter, named Alice Lucy.
She is a wondrous seed sown from love,
A little miracle of happiness from above.
She'll cry, she'll shout, she'll play and sleep,
For she is a little beauty of God's own earth
For her parents to keep.
To cuddle, to feed, to cherish with love,
A precious child sent from above.
Like the petal from a rose,
So soft and tender in repose.
Beautiful face of a beautiful child,
Skin as soft as the morning dew,
Peace and happiness is wished for you.
Settings of beauty where cool breezes blow,
Sunshine and laughter wherever you go.
In this world what will you be?
Will you fight for peace and humanity?
Baby blue eyes precious child,
So fresh, so innocent, so meek, and mild.
You're like a beautiful flower
Picked from the garden in spring,
So I'll sit back and watch you grow,
Like a snowdrop peeping through snow.
As apple blossom floats from the tree,
And the butterfly floats serene.
All these things I wish for you dear Alice Lucy,
What a wonderful, wonderful scene.
May the Lord God bless you this day.
Love Granddadxx this young lady
is now 15 yrs old, and like her Granddad
