The Hat

The family is growing, another child on the way

Wishing you were here, that is everyday

Your great-grandkids are growing, and some are new

Since you have been gone, we added a few

The gifts you knitted, we all handed down

Just when we thought, there were no more around

Tucked in a drawer, a hat knitted by you

For the newest addition, you added some blue

You knew all along, someday there would be

A new great-grandson, how lucky is he!

You are sending us messages, from way above

No coincidence, Ma, you are sending your love

Just when we thought, the treasures you made

Were all gone, and the memories would fade

This hat appears, another sign for sure

You are always around, now and forever more!
