(Scroll down for the complete poem.)

Once I had a soul mate and a love.
Now I have five loves.
All seven and under.
They all have beautifiul eyes.

The two boys and three girls and smiles.
Giggles fill the house when they are here.
Tickle me Grandma, tickle me.
Even I giggle with them.

Their parents stand by observing
Ready to catch the one who falls.
All wiggles and giggles my little band.
My love flows out and into them.

My special ones learning and growing.
Grandchildren full of love and energy
I will watch over them always.
When I can't my angels will.
