My Grandpa Joe
My grandpa Joe gives me the biggest hugs, with his long, hairy arms.
His hugs are warmer than a bear hug, and tighter than a cobra.
My grandpa Joe gives me the scratchiest kisses, with all his bristly whiskers.
His kisses are scratchier than a cat’s tongue, but a lot nicer too!
My grandpa Joe has the gravelliest voice, when he says “Hello darling!”.
His voice is deeper than the ocean, and growlier than a lion!
My grandpa Joe has the biggest heart in the whole wide world.
It’s taller than a giraffe, and wider than a whale, and in it there is room for grandma, for daddy and mummy, my aunty, my brother and me.
I love my grandpa Joe, with his big hugs and scratchy kisses, his gravelly voice and big heart.
And I will have him in my heart forever and ever, because I know he will always carry me in his.
