Poem -

A NANAS HEART

Overspilled with love
My lonely heart
To hear your faltered
Stops and starts
Singing loud
Your Xmas hymns
Though miles
We are apart

Sweet child of three
Such a gift to me
From heavens loving arms
Hollybelle
​​​​​​My heart does swell
Bound tight within
Your young girl spell

And know 
Though miles
We are apart
Here beats for you
A Nana's heart
Always.
Marion Price( 2019)

I might rework this, I'm tired,  but earlier on she proudly sang all the Christmas carols she had learned over the phone, I wanted to capture the moment...young children are such a gift, life has not corrupted them yet, you will experience this again soon I'm sure ...fingers crossed 💕

My Dear Marion,

Such a lovely touching tribute to your little granddaughter.  

Because she lives so far away
My granddaughter called the other day
She sang my Christmas carols o'er the phone
I love her so, and I am ne'er alone

All my love,
Larry xxx

Awe...you are so good at these little verses that often express the sentiments better than the original poem ...lol...it was the innocence and unabashed pride of a three year old spirit thrilled to be singing ( new) songs about Xmas that did it ....( She had discovered something clearly none of us knew existed ...lol) blessings lovely man 💕
