BY EDMUND DANIELS
From the moment she entered my life I knew--
All my cloudy days would turn clear and blue,
And my lonely nights I could bid adieu.
The sun glows brighter with each passing day
With each golden ray that shines upon me,
the night sky seems to be infused
With Michelangelo’s colorful hues.
As I gaze upon the starlit view,
I discover the passion of her in my arms.
And my heart seems to fly with the eagle on high
I’ll always want to be around
To give her a hug when she’s feeling down
And to kiss away her troubles, to be her clown.
When she smiles her smile, my heart begins to melt.
Into pools of emotion I have never felt.
But the greatest feeling I’ve ever had
Was the first time she whispered,
“I love you, Granddad!”
