Joy to your Mom and Dad.
Obviously for you they’re glad.
Now they won’t be lonely or sad.
And for your sisters too they’re glad.
Together you make a family.
Hearts full of love and very happy.
Angelic with open arms you greet me.
Now that’s a pleasant thing to see.
Jonathan, I love you so very much,
As I hope you already know.
I visit and call as often as I can,
So my love to you I can show.
I wish I didn’t live so far away,
So we could be together a whole lot more.
I could see you and your sisters everyday,
And we’d sit and play on the floor.
I put up the pictures you color for me.
I put them on the refrigerator door.
They are there for all others to see,
Until you give me more.
When I visit you, I go with you to Sunday School,
Where many Bible Stories you hear,
Where you learn about the Golden Rule,
And God’s love for everybody everywhere.
To my nephew.
