Valentine for Charlotte




Valentine for Charlotte

She saw her grandma and grandpa

With ashes on their head

“I wanna ashtray too”, she said

So we gave her some of ours

It didn’t make her happy

She sat and pouted

Ashes from the priest

Is what the little girl wanted

Not second hand blessings

The kind that could be doubted

So maybe a valentine

Would make this little darling smile

Some special joy for Charlotte

Our gift of hearts for topping off her pile


A simple note to let her know she’s loved

Wishing her so many blessings from above

A memory to share with her kids

When she’s a mommy too


Then she’ll know the way we feel

A family full of grace

With love that has no measure

And how no matter where we roam

She’ll always be our treasure.
