12 Pages Of Christmas

Grandson Poem by Johnny McEvoy

GRANDSON


I watch you from my chair

And wonder at your beauty

Your child’s innocence

Your hair

Your straight and wonderful body

Your eyes to die for


I am old now

And you are so very young

I would gladly give

What’s left of my life

For you, my holy child


I would give you every dream

I ever had

I would give you every happy moment

I spent

May you laugh for ever


I would give you blue skies

Green forests

And running rivers

I would give you the glittering stars

May they shine on you forever


I would gladly give all of this

And more, and more

I would give you a better world

Than I ever knew


You are a gift

You will give joy to many.

May the sun shine on you forever
