. . . FIRST GRANDCHILD . . .

As if God saved the best for last,
With a gift from Heaven above;
Then sent it down on angel's wings,
In a tiny bundle of love.

The purest touch of Heaven,
God sent to live on earth;
Is there within your first Grandchild,
In the miracle of its birth.

The first time that you hold them,
Nestled in your arms so sweet;
They somehow steal your heart away,
And make your life complete.

As if God saved the best for last,
Then sent it from Heaven above;
This tiny babe on angel's wings,
Your first Grandchild to love.
