If Only I Knew
If only I knew, what this be job would be,
Call it carer, childminder or just Nanny
An early start, always mindful, it can be quite a long day
But payed in kisses and cuddles, the very best way.
You hear people say, it’s the best job in the world
Their smiling happy faces, do prove this
Knowing, they know, you will always love them
When you hand them back with a wave and a kiss.
If only I knew, what I would feel, to see that little face
Such an overwhelming desire to hold and treasure
The feeling of love was just so strong
This little bundle could do no wrong.
So he grows and explores and is always changing
He smiles and talks and is so entertaining
If only I knew what becoming a Nan would be
The highlight of an already wonderful life for me.
