5: A Boy Needs A Grandpa A boy needs a Grandpa, for man-to-man talks, to go hand and hand on companionable walks, to fix up his toys when they no longer go, to tell him the things a little boy wants 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's looking, to take a wee nap, each wrapped in an aura of love and esteem, each smiling gently at some special dream.
6: Sugar & Spice & Every- thing nice
7: Two Sweethearts God said, "I have something for you, I thought I would send one, but I just sent two." Grandaughters they be, and it's really nice. God thought to bless grandpa twice. Flooding my life with so much joy, girls aren't the same as a little boy. They love you and become apart, twisting a vine around your heart Each one grows a little each day, Growing up in their own way. Just so beautiful, like two cultured pearls, How Grandpa loves his two girls. Two sweethearts, I like to call them, God's gift to me, I should thank him. None so loved your Grandpa imparts Bella and Gabby, my two sweethearts!
