Grandpa

 

By William P. Darnell Sr.

 

A boy needs 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 want 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 needs 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.
