I could spend the rest of my days sitting here in this chair
Watching my little grand daughter comb the puppy’s hair.
She has so much energy, she’s always on the go.
The only time she looks around is when I tell her, “No!”
It’s easy to love the children and the folly of a child.
They fall down and get back up and hardly lose their smile.
The good lord told each of us He’s not too hard to please.
All we really have to do is become like one of these!
Sleepless nights and diapers are such a small price to pay
To make sure the little ones will have a brighter day.
A million years of ancestors have come this way and gone,
And it’s good to know our family will go on and on!
