To My Beautiful Granddaughter, A poem by Nana Julie

To My Beautiful Granddaughter

Born on 25th August 2008

When you came into this world, undoubtedly in no hurry
My anxious prayers were answered, no more need to worry
Daddy was a little shocked as he thought you were a “he”
Mummy couldn’t believe you weighed a healthy eight pound three!

On that warm winter Monday, sun shining with skies so blue
I felt blessed to have a granddaughter as beautiful as you
My “Lyla Alexandra” your life has just begun
A little ray of sunshine and so loved by everyone

From the first time I held you, cradled in my arms so sweet
You stole my heart away and have made my life complete
A perfect little granddaughter, a gift from heaven above
My eyes just fill with tears and my heart so full of love

You were only three days old when I was giving you a bath
I was a little clumsy as your mummy looked on and laughed
Though during those precious moments turning to look my way
You were so intent with listening to all I had to say

I think of you every minute and although we are miles apart
Your picture on my computer sure does melt my heart
With the face of little angel so pretty with soft dark hair
Every night before I close my eyes I say a little prayer

We will have fun times together, little holidays as such
I’ll always want to cuddle you and feel your gentle touch
I want to tell you stories and teach you everything
Hear your laughs and giggles whilst dancing as we sing

I have everything I’ve hoped for and will never want for more
I treasure my beautiful family and forever love you all
As a Nana and a granddaughter, our journey has just begun
My heart is yours forever, God bless you little one

Love always

    Such a lovely poem. With your permission I would like to copy a few lines, of course with due credit to you, for my granddaughter. Thanks!

    Valerie, I read this poem often to my three granddaughters. I appreciate your taking the time to comment.

    Very nice. Why can I be so eloquent in trials and life’s little tribulations but not about my own granddaughter (born today in the USA). But fear not Athena, for as they say “so long as lips can read and eyes can read, so much does this give life to thee …” And Julie, I hope all has gone well for you and your grandchild….
