With love to my granddaughter Gabrielle
Living life is not easy to do
Someone will be missing you
When you are far away
Just don’t go astray.
Our hearts will be longing
Just waiting and wanting
Knowing it won’t be too long
Before you are back where you belong.
All we have to do
Is just wait on you
You’ll be back when you can
Right where it all began.
With God as your guide
Always at your side
You won’t get lost
Or ever star-crossed.
Your own life you must live
Remember to God love to give
He will be there with you all the way
On your journey that you take each day.
Live each day as if it were your last
Ask God to forgive and put your sins in the past
Give God whatever He is due
And He will always take care of you.
We will miss you more with each passing day
But we know that you must stay
It is your destiny to be away
To do your work and have some play.
We will see you if and when we can
It is all a big part of God’s plan
Living your life as you see fit
And doing whatever God will permit.
