Thank You Daughter

© Robert Mayfield
Thank you daughter for the gift you gave to me
A happier grandfather there never will be

This beautiful little girl, so tiny, so small
Brought joy to my life, smiles to us all.

I see you in her face and her eye's so blue
This little girl is a carbon copy of you

And just like you, she will grow O so fast
These precious moments you know wont last

Cherish every second, every minute, every day
You'll be astounded by how fast time fly’s away

I know a wonderful mother you will surely be
As wonderful as the daughter you have been to me

There are no words on earth or up above
That for you and Keelin can express my Love

Love Dad/Pop Pop

  • I was really touched by this poem . My daughter recently got married and now I realized how time flies fast. A question is raised , if I have cherished those beautiful moments, caressing my love. I always feel that its the grandparents who develops a strong bond with the grand child. The parents are too busy and burdened with the new responsibility and so later they feel they have missed those precious moments.
