Grandfather

A Boy Needs A Grandpa
A boy need a Grandpa….
For man-to-man talks,
To go hand in hand
On companionable walks,
To fix up his toys
When they no longer go,
To tell him the things
Little boys what to know.

A boy needs a Grandpa…
To show him the way
To handle a puppy,
To teach him fair play.
To impart bits of wisdom
He’s learned through the years,
That it’s no disgrace
For a man to shed tears.

A boy need a Grandpa…
To sit on his lap
And if no one is looking,
They take a wee nap,
Each wrapped in an aura
Of love and esteem,
Each smiling gently
At some special dream.

Grandpa Doesn’t Care
My ice cream dripped on his good pants,
but grandpa doesn’t care.
his fishing tackle’s tangled up,
his rod is who knows where?
I lost his keys in the garage,
I’ve made a mess out there.
I’m always getting into things,
but granda doesn’t care.
I help him in the garden ’cause
we’re really quite a pair,
I pull the plants out with the weeds,
but grandpa doesn’t care.
When I am grown and on my own,
when visits became rare,
I won’t forget the love I’d get when
grandpa didn’t care.
