Written when my granddaughter, Robyn, was small and still wanted to be a member of our family.  She has lost her way and we miss her very much.





A scattering of small freckles

On her pert little nose

Her hair in careless disarray

Everywhere she goes


She’s always in a hurry

Seems never to run-down

A smile’s spread across her face

She’s rarely seen to frown


She’s a bit absent-minded

And a bit of a tease

She’s quick to show affection

And she’s easy to please


Her most annoying habit

(Or so it would seem)

Is not hearing what you say

When she’s lost in a dream


But I sure cannot fault her

Since that trait came from me

But, those who dream, see beauty

And that part’s nice, you see


Her concern for other people

Is wonderful, it’s true

For she’s loyal and protective

And tender-hearted, too


And when her arms embrace me

And I feel her sweet soft kiss

My heart is filled with deepest love

For this sweet little miss


And since she is so special

I give this little prayer

“Thank you God, for a special gift”

My Robyn Adair
