I am just an old grandfather

As everybody knows.

Of course, they know I stumble

And stagger and it shows.



Nothing in my hands I bring

To offer or to give.

Simply to this clause I cling,

My life, my love to live.



Forever through my poetry

My stories and my song.

This old, decrepit soldier

Has lived his life along.



The sluggish path of hardship

That makes one hard and strong

Says nothing to embellish

Just join the hardship throng.



This someone called to help me

It was just a simple prayer.

The prayer was providential

For you see God was there.



A wonderful granddaughter

Prayed this prayer for me,

Find her in God’s book of love

That lasts eternally!
