Pop Pop Epistle #55 – My Little Darling Christy


Dear Grandkids,

Today we celebrate a birthday! Your Mom (G and B and M) and Aunt (K and A and A) was born 33 years ago today. Which means that she is 33 on 3/3. I have written each of you a letter when you were born but when Christy and her brothers were born I wrote them poems.

I thought that today I would share with you the poem that I wrote for her 2 days after she was born.

My Little Darling Christy

My little darling Christy –
How much I love you so!
As you grow up and older
I hope you’ll always know
That you are very special
And your father’s heart is full
Of love and deep emotions
That are uncontrollable.
Your little life is precious
As your life will always be,
And though I’m sometimes blind
Your Father’s heart can see
The precious love you have to offer,
The priceless gift you have to give,
The wondrous hope you have within you,
The wondrous life you have to live.
You’ll always be my child
And even when I am not near
You’ll still be in my heart –
And your Father’s ears will hear
The whispers from your lips,
The prayers that you will pray,
The cries that you will cry,
The words that you will say.
My little darling Christy –
My heart is full of love
But even it cannot compare
To your Father’s love above.

You know her as an amazing mom and aunt. But before she was this she was my beautiful, tender-hearted, precious daughter. You are very blessed to have her in your life – as is everyone that knows her. And by the way…

I still call her darling.

Never forget that you are very loved!
