By my grandpa James
Some people store up treasures of gold
But none can compare with the one that I hold
Like a beauteous gem – polished and shined
This treasure I have is one of a kind.
‘Tis my wife Lil you see,
Who puts up with me and takes care of my needs
No gem can compare with my wife, she’s of the highest degree
Cooking, sewing, mending and looking to my many needs.
So you can have your treasures of gold
I’ll be content with the patient and loving care
From this gem of a wife, who never grumbles or scolds
So God Bless her each day, as each day we share.
Saying: Be pleasant until ten o’clock in the morning and the rest of the day will take care of itself.
