Love note to my grandbaby
|Eowyn, my little love, you grow so fast
A year ago, you were no bigger than my two hands
Now you zip around with speed and alacrity
Soon you will begin to stand
And take the steps that will lead you
To all the glorious places the world has to hold
Eowyn, my little love, my little spritely miss
Let me help you learn as your life unfolds
Let your light pierce the dark
Eowyn, my little love, joy to my heart
I think of you always
Although miles apart
Take from me my the sad days
My sweet, sweet grandbaby girl
Let your smile of pure love shine
Eowyn, my little love, center of my world
