A Baby Born King

I remember, a gold brown face.

A shiny, bald head,

A smile that can make the poorest smile back.

I also remember, a father, grandfather, a soldier.

One who was covered with pride and hope,

A man who was a worshipper of God Almighty.

Oh, yes, I remember you well!

I might have not known you for many years,

But it felt like I’ve known you for eternity.

Your family will forever remember you,

I will remember you, grandpa

As a Baby Born King, God crowned you to be from the start.
