Our newborn grandson (photopost)


We loved you from the very start,
You stole our breath, embraced our hearts 
Our life together has just begun
you're part of us, our little one.
From the day we first knew,
our minds were filled with thoughts of you.
We'd daydream of the things we'd share,
Like late night bottels and teddy bears.
Like first steps and skinned knees,
Like bedtime stories and ABC's
We thought of things you'd want to know,
Like how birds fly and flowers grow.

We thought of lessons we'd need to share,
Like standing tall and playing fair.
Each nap time we lay you down to sleep,
and gently kiss your head and cheek.
We count your little fingers and toes,
We memorise your eyes and nose.
We linger at the nursery door,
Awed each day we love you more.
Through misty eyes, we dim the light,
we whisper, "We love you" every night.
We loved you from the very start,
You stole our breath, embraced our hearts.
As grandparents and grandchild our journey's begun
Our hearts yours forever, little one.
