Grandma Kisses
10-8-05 at 19 months
I had such feelings of pride and love
When I first saw you today.
All the emotions that I felt inside
Words cannot begin to say.
Nothing makes me happier
Than seeing your precious face.
My feelings overwhelm me 
That time can never erase.
No matter how many months go by
Until I see you once again
You always seem to remember me
As if it comes from within.
You came right into my arms
Sweeter kisses could not be found.
I held you tightly in my arms
Until you wanted me to put you down.
Your brown eyes looked around
Taking in all that you could see.
Your brown hair sparkled in the sun
As you ran around with such glee.
I looked at your baby hands
With little dimples at each finger
I stroked your arm to feel the softness 
And there I wished to linger.
Soft cheeks made for a grandma to kiss
Oh, nothing could ever replace.
I could just spend hours
Looking at your precious little face.
I can't seem to get enough of you.
I could give up hours and days
Just watching your every move.
I love you more than words can say.
