If Grandchildren Could See What I See

I wish they could see through my eyes -
Lush green grass wild and free
Streams flowing e'er gently
Corn growing silently,
While fluff clouds roll in the skies.

I wish they could feel with my heart -
Tomatoes ripe on vine,
Nails in barn hanging twine,
Blackberries taste so fine,
Yellow goldenrod stand as art.

I wish they could see through my eyes -
Cat drinking milk from cow,
Horse till the soil with plow,
Baby piglets with sow,
Farmers getting rest by and by.

I wish they could feel with my heart -
Fun playing tag some more,
Under apple tree store,
Doing the ev'ning chores,
God's blessings He imparts.

I wish they could feel with my eyes -
Rainbow after the rain,
Sunrise on windowpane,
Soft rain falling on grain,
Love shared before good-byes.
