I sing to thee, sweet lullabies

melodious tunes that come to mind

Exquisite fruit of tender taste...

my arms, they long

for your embrace

Sweet child of love and simplicity

consumes my thoughts, exigencies

For you were sent to ease grief's craze

Great cause to cheer my golden age

Transgressed the torments

that pierced my heart

Infused my space

with your vivacious laugh

Angelic life force, God's subsidy

has helped me

numb life's tragedies

Your mischievous deeds

and playful ways

Keep me on my toes day after day

No virtuous or purer form of love

on earth is known

The bound between

a grandma and her grandchild...

surmounts them all

Dedicated to my one and only

Grandson: Damien
