A Priceless Masterpiece

ONE OF A KIND

I have a priceless masterpiece
Truly, one of a kind
The greatest work of human art
That anyone can find

It’s my precious great Grandsons
And, oh, what joy they bring
Each time I hold them close to me
My very being sings

The cutest little hands and feet
Beautiful deep blue eyes
Sweetest little nose and mouth
And ears, a perfect size

I’m sure they’re just like other tots
In looks and physique
With components that are most choice
Which makes him quite unique

We’re all so happy with them
But, why shouldn’t we be
One makes no changes in the best
And they’re the best, you see

     ONE OF A KIND

        (Christopher)

  

I have a priceless masterpiece

Truly, one of a kind

The greatest work of human art

That anyone can find

 

It’s my precious new Grandson

And, oh, what joy he brings

Each time I hold him close to me

My very being sings

 

The cutest little hands and feet

Beautiful deep blue eyes

Sweetest little nose and mouth

And ears, a perfect size

 

I’m sure he’s just like other tots

In looks and physique

With  components that are most choice

Which makes him quite unique

 

We’re all so happy with him

But, why shouldn’t we be

One makes no changes in the best

And he’s the best, you see

    GOD’S MASTERPIECE              rosebud-toni-elaine

               (Toni)

 

Heaven’s gate must have opened

And a cherub slipped through

I know, because I’ve seen you

And hugged and kissed you, too

 

You’re quite a little treasure

Perfect in every way

A rosebud from God’s Garden

A flower in my bouquet

 

You’ve cast your spell upon me

And I don’t mind at all

In fact I rather like it

Being charmed by one so small

 

And what a perfect word to give

To someone just like you

GRANDchild fits you perfectly

I promise you, it”s true

 

God formed your pretty little mouth

And made it mighty sweet

Then He worked to perfection

On your wee hands and feet

 

Next, He formed your tiny nose

And eyes, (the bluest blue)

He fashioned perfect little ears

And silken hair, too

 

He kissed your cheeks to make them pink

And dimpled both your knees

And then He sent you on your way

Knowing you would please

 

You’re a marvelous little Angel

Although there’s not one wing

And I’ve fallen in love with you

My precious little thing
