A Grandchild Gives New Hope In Life

A GRANDCHILD GIVES NEW HOPE IN LIFE

A grandchild gives new hope in life
An old man plays and says nonsense
And is happy again-

A little smiling child
Who does not know or understand
Who cannot speak to me
Gives me hope again
And makes me forget
All my failed ambitions-

Because this small child lives
I regain my love of life-

What a blessing to be
A grandfather in my old age.
