A Tribute to a Grandchild
By David Smith July 1, 2013
Mikayla a gifted child and a graduate for sure
And now leaves Grade Twelve to higher learning to endure
It’s the imprint on the school that she has left behind
Encouragement to teachers
Satisfaction that they find
She has respect from students and her teachers dear
They gave her the building blocks for life we sometimes fear
So she leaves prepared for her next step in life
An encouragement to me as circumstances sometimes strike.
An attitude of gold that enriches at every turn
An increase of knowledge to prevent from being burned.
And with all her smarts and all what she has got
Grandparents become successful because children teach a lot
And so we learn from young and how the young’ens thrive
Adapt it to old age to keep passion alive.
And thanks be to Mikayla to inspire others to grow.
All can be uplifting for a better world to know.
