"Within my Hands I Hold"

Although empty in my embrace
All these years I've kept
On quiet nights in solemn thought
As she soundly slept
Cherished moments lost in time
Cheerful laughter filled my ears
Holding her in my arms
Wiping all her tears
When she went off to school
I cried
They were joyous tears
Soon after that
Quenched of all my fears
This day she has given life
The birth of my grandchild
I will hold her shoes
Once again I am beguiled
On quiet nights in solemn thought
She will soundly sleep
