Grandparents are full of pride
When that first baby does arrive
They understand the meaning of love
When they hold that baby sent from above.
Grandparents can provide many things
Love, affection and they may even sing
They are always there to lend a hand
And the grandkids learn that they understand.
When the grandkids go to sleep
They pray to the Lord for Him to keep
They pray for protection and for smiles
And to keep grandkids safe through all life's trials.
Grandparents love to sing and play
They are happy to see grandkids any day
The smile that comes upon their face
Makes grandkids welcome at their place.
Grandparents share wisdom and advice
They tell stories that are nice
They share secrets about Mom and Dad
They make grandkids happy and glad.
Grandparents always care
They are always willing and always share
Grandparents say I love you more
As you leave and go out the door.
Grandparents are a family’s greatest treasure,
The founders of a loving legacy, the greatest storytellers,
The keepers of traditions that linger on in cherished memory.
Grandparents are the family’s strong foundation.
Their very special love sets them apart.
Through happiness and sorrow,
through their special love and caring,
Grandparents keep a family close at heart.
Poet: 10-year-old Tommy
They always have a special treat
And never make me wash my feet.
They get right down on the floor
Play with me and say no more.
They watch over me
Keep me busy as a bee.
They laugh and sing
And let me have the bell that rings
I know they love me so much
I can tell by their voice and their touch
I feel so safe and happy with them
They make me feel like a special gem.
My grandparents are special to me
They love me lots I can see
I love them and think they are special too
I thank them and love them for all they do.
Grandparents bestow upon their grandchildren
The strength and wisdom that time
And experience have given them.
Grandchildren bless their Grandparents
With a youthful vitality and innocence
That helps them stay young at heart forever.
Together they create a chain of love
Linking the past with the future
The chain may lengthen, but it will never part.
In this journey of life, we have learned things
But nothing prepared us for what grandchildren bring.
It's been many a year since we looked after a small child
Before our grandchildren life was so mild.
But now with the grandkids, our life is full of pride
We hope, we pray that as grandparents we wisely guide
We love these little ones with all of our heart
We think they are the cutest and they sure are smart.
Life holds so many treasures but we want to say
Being a grandparent is the best of all days.
"Grandchildren fill the hearts of a grandparent with love and lost youth."
When We Are Old
Poet: F. W. Sanderson
When are we old? and how and where,
When gray hairs steal in unaware?
May it be known by signs of care,
Or children's children here and there?
Special Grandparents Poet: Catherine Pulsifer
Grandma, you, and Grandpa are special to me
With grandparents like you guys, how lucky can I be
Part of your family I'm thankful I was born
I never had to worry about being forlorn.
You both provided love and so much care
With you both, I was always happy and never scared
The feeling of security and love
For you both, I thank God above!
May the love of our family surround you both
May you see us all mature with loving growth
May the days be happy ones for you and plus
We love you both, you're so special to us
An Example Poet: Catherine Pulsifer
My grandparents have both passed away
But I will always remember the days
When I came to their home
And my grandpa's hair I would comb.
He only had a few strands of hair
But he never seemed to care.
Grandma would smile at me
As I made Grandpa's hair fancy.
These two people loved me so
They didn't have to tell me I knew it so
They always had time for me
They spoiled me as a baby.
A smile would light upon their face
Whenever I came over to their place.
They made me feel so special
And encouraged me to reach my potential.
I miss their loving arms
Their wisdom and their charm
But I know they are still watching me from above
They filled my life with love.
They set an example for me
I now know what a grandparent should be!
Poet: Catherine Pulsifer
We have treasures, not of money and gold
Not of silver or things that we sold
Our grandparents are a treasure for sure
Because they love us and adore.
No amount of money could buy
And no amount of toys even qualify
For the love they give us
Is truly a life plus!
We may not see them every day
But when we do they will always play
They always have time you see
And always want us to be happy.
In My Heart
Poet: Catherine Pulsifer
My grandparents are with God above
But I can still feel their love.
They showered me with wisdom
Before they left for the Kingdom.
Growing up they loved me so
A love in action they did show.
In their eyes, I could do no wrong
They made me feel I belonged.
They left a legacy in me
They helped shape who I would be
I miss them every day
But in my heart, they will always stay.
