The Literary Works of Dr. Jane Penelope Johnson

Our Gentle Giant

At sixteen “shine” like a diamond up in the sky
Live life to its fullest
Here’s the reason why

Huge in stature, a tackle on the football team
A large and “growly bear” to others you may seem

Your sensitive blue eyes say otherwise
For you are sensitive, creative, musical and kind
A more loving grand-son no one could ever find
Big tall and strong you know right from wrong
With your sense of humor and heart of pure gold
Young man, you are going places
When all is said and told “Shine on!”
