from by Stephen Simmons



Being an Uncle stirs a sentimental part of me clearly, I won't have a lot materially to pass along to them when I'm gone; but I hope I am able to pass along something more valuable to them in this lifetime.



Well what do you know?
I’ve got three Nephews and a little Niece
And they take turns
Tugging at my heart sleeves

You’ll never understand
And my Aunt told me long ago
Till you hold those little tiny hands
of your blood kin of your own

I wish I could bestow
Faith, Love and Hope
Kindness and Tenderness and Grace
And an easy road
All that I own
With my heart and soul
To you I bequeath
As you grow old

There were little heart clouds
In the Tennessee summer sky
I’d have got one down for all of you
If I could jump that high

I’d love you
all the way to the moon and back
If there really was some kind
Of celestial rainbow track
