I've a lot to be thanking my Grandfather for

Who apart from no patience had no moral flaw,

Who spoke of no learning and growing up poor.

I've a lot to be thankful for hearing the things

He spoke of, solutions and not diamond rings;

And loved all his children like past Queens and Kings.

I've a lot to be thanking my Grandfather for

Who ate every meal and asked for no more,

Who spoke of the Oceans and on the 'Shop' floor,

I've a lot to be thankful for hearing such things

He spoke of adventure and not clipping wings;

And loved us like diamonds and tended our stings.

I've a lot to be thanking my Grandfather for,

Who saved all his pennies and gave out much more,

I've a lot to be thankful for hearing these things...

And remembering his life; and the joy that it brings.
