I’m going to be a granny, I found out, for certain, today.
I’m going to be a granny, hip, hip, hip, hooray!
Even though I won’t be able to bounce it on my knee,
Or push it in the pram, or cuddle it close to me,
I can sing it lullabies, recite my poems and fairytales,
Whisper stories about its mother; oh, how I will regale
About the time she..............well, you know.......she did that....thing!
I hope that, though I can’t babysit, to its little life I can bring
Some kind of help, and advice and oh, such love, galore;
Though I wish, with all my heart, that I could offer so much more.
I’m grateful that I may well be around so that I can see
My new grandchild who will be adored by me, Granny P!
