I’ll be there behind you whatever you do.
So young are you now – just starting your life,
I hope I’m around when you’re mother and wife.
I’m Grandpa – or Poppie – as you gave me that name,
If I spoil you all rotter I’m not really to blame.
You turn the heads now as you pass through a crowd,
You’re a rainbow that shines behind a dark cloud.
You are part of me now and that always will be,
I’ll cherish this time as you sit on my knee.
