We go to bed and we kiss goodnight,
You say, “I love you”, I turn off the light.
And before you go to sleep you say,
“Tomorrow will be a lovely day!”
As we lie there together, just we two,
I wonder how I was blessed with you.
I never deserved such a blessing, I know,
But I always thank God that it is so.
Your hand in mine as we fall asleep,
Happy, contented, we drink life deep.
Tomorrow has such fun in store,
For a grandmother and a boy of four!
