Oh how time flies at warp speed

It’s been nearly three years

Since I tasted my tears

Of sheer wonder

Track down my face, a wet

Filigree lace of saltiness

In the maternity ward

Where he arrived

The little scrap who

Has stolen my heart

My beautiful boy

First Grandson of mine

Oliver Madden Garnett

His Grandpere’s pride and joy
