  1. Nifty and Sixty

    Sometimes I miss my old grandfather,
    For he was always there to bother.
    He’d walk with me ’til he was pooped
    And talk with me – out on the stoop.
    There was nothing he didn’t know –
    A book of knowledge from head to toe.
    He was sometimes stern and sometimes funny,
    But he always got me feeling sunny.
    If ever a grandchild climbs on my knee,
    I hope I’m the grandpa he’d like me to be.

  2. I would say sweet dreams my love,
    but if they are the shadow of mine…
    they shall be far from sweet.
