Welcome to This World

Inspired by a song made by my uncle, Paul.

Welcome to this world,
My dearest grandson,
A place of peace and love,
That has finally embraced you.

Welcome to this world,
This world is not ideal,
There are flaws, there are chinks,
Within this world’s beauty.

But people have learned to care,
For themselves, for each other,
And I hope you will carry this on,
In the next generation.

Welcome to this world,
You are now home,
To people who love you,
Friends and family alike.

And if the world changes,
And they depart to another destination,
Know that I will be watching you,
Grandson.
