A Legacy of Love

A wife, a mother, a grandma Too

this is the legacy we have from you.

You taught us to love and how to fight

you gave us strength, you gave us might.

A stronger person would be hard to find

and in your heart, you were always kind.

You fought for us in one way and another

not just as a wife, not just as a mother.

For all of us you gave your best

now it's time for you to rest.

So go in peace, you've earned your sleep

your love in our hearts we'll eternally keep.

A Love Like No Other

(Grandad and Grandchild)

From the time I was born

I guess you would know

Ten perfect fingers

Ten little toes

When you first put your finger in my tiny hand that’s when I first knew

You were my papa no one else would do

As I grow older

and reach for the sky

My Papa is still there

to keep that twinkle in my eye

When I need someone to hold me

you never say I’m too big

You pick me up and squeeze me

and whisper you’re my little kid

Most other people don’t understand me

or maybe just not as well

That’s why you’re the one I run to

when I have something to tell

I love you Papa

as you can see

I’m so glad

that you’re a part of me.

You still love me and watch over me!

A Very Special Grandma

My Grandma's hands could heal my hurt

or cool my fevered brow.

Her care – and not a learned degree

experience taught her how.

I always knew that I was loved

by deeds or hugs or smile.

She proved it in so many ways

'Twas special – Grandma style.

Sometimes she was my playmate

Oft' times my mentor too.

I learned to take life as it came;

that's helped my my life through.

Then I grew up and she grew old

yet our love had no end

For I was blessed long as she lived

'cause Grandma was my friend.

I can still hear her laughter and see that special twinkle in her eyes.

Gone but Never Forgotten. I love you Grandma!!

We Had A Wonderful


We had a wonderful grandmother,

One who never really grew old;

Her smile was made of sunshine,

And her heart was solid gold;

Her eyes were as bright as shining stars,

And in her cheeks fair roses you see.

We had a wonderful grandmother,

And that’s the way it will always be.

But take heed, because

She’s still keeping an eye on all of us,

So let’s make sure

She will like what she sees.

We’ll always remember

that special smile,

that caring heart,

that warm embrace,

you always gave us.

You being there

for Grandma and us

through good and bad times,

no matter what.

We’ll always remember

you Grandpa because

there’ll never be another one

to replace you in our hearts,

and the love we will always

have for you.

Such A Good Grandma

Grandma, your life was full of loving deeds,

forever thoughtful of our special needs.

Today and tomorrow, my whole life through,

I will always love and cherish you.

Oh the wonder in grandmother’s touch,

and sunshine in her smile.

There was love in everything she did

to make our lives worthwhile.

We found both hope and courage

just by looking in her eyes.

Her laughter was a source of joy,

her words warm and wise.

There was a kindness and compassion

found in her embrace,

And shining down from Heaven above

we see the glow of Grandma’s face.

Our Nanny

Such wonderful memories of Nanny

The Nanny we all used to know

We kept you too long and there waiting

The angels have said you can go

Bright golden gates that are shining

Full of family to bid you hello

So blow us a kiss as you’re leaving

Our sadness we’ll try not to show

Such wonderful memories of Nanny

We all have our favorites you see

As you enter those gates you’ll be thinking

They’re all there thinking of me!

Our Grandad


We know you can no longer stay with us,

you fought long and hard to be with us.

We know you now watch over and protect us.

Although we cannot hear your voice or see your smiling face,

We know deep down in our hearts that you have not left us.

Instead every day you surround us with the singing of the birds,

the rising of the sun and the falling of night.

So many broken hearts are left behind,

But in our deepest despair our greatest comfort lies knowing

that you are now at peace with the angels and God.

So as times passes our tears will dry,

our hearts will mend,

but our love for you will never end.

The Wonder Of Our Grandma


There was something about grandma's touch,

and the sunshine in her smile.

There was love in everything she did

Grandfather Kept a Garden

Our Grandfather kept a garden.

A garden of the heart;

He planted all the good things,

That gave our lives their start.

He turned us to the sunshine,

And encouraged us to dream:

Fostering and nurturing the seeds of self-esteem.

And then the winds and rain came,

He protected us enough;

But not too much because he knew

We would stand up strong and tough.

His constant good example,

Always taught us right from wrong;

Markers for our pathway that will last

a lifetime long.

We are our Grandfather’s garden,

We are his legacy.

Thank you Grandfather, we love you.

Nan's Special Smile


Though her smile is gone from our presence

and her hands we cannot touch

We still have so many memories

Of the one we loved so much.

Her memory is now our keepsake

Which with we will never part.

God has her in his keeping

I have her in our hearts.

You are sadly missed

but never forgotten.

My Grandfather

My Grandfather was a man who had smiles to brighten your days,

who always made you feel good with his warm words of praise.

And what’s more he knew

what to do to make wishes come true.

He was my Grandfather.

My Grandfather was someone who always had good stories to tell,

but just as importantly he knew how to be a good listener as well.

He was patient and kind

and the very best friend you could ever hope to find.

He was no ordinary man.

And I’m proud to tell the world that

[his name] Was my Grandfather.

If Flowers Grow In Heaven


If flowers grow in heaven Lord,

then pick a bunch for me then

place them in my Grandma’s arms

and tell her they’re from me.

Tell her that I love and miss her

and when she turns to smile,

place a kiss upon her cheek and

hold her for awhile.

A Poem for Grandma

Grandma, you were just a girl, So many years ago.

You had your loves and had your dreams,

You watched us come and go.

You watched us make the same mistakes,

That you had made before,

But that just made you hold us tight,

And love us all the more.

We haven’t always thought about

The things that you have seen.

To us you’ve just been ‘Grandma’,

No thought of who you’ve been.

But we remember now in love,

Your life from start to end,

And we’re just glad we knew you,

As Grandma, and as Friend.

My Grandma

Grandma, you were so sweet;

Like honey from a bee.

You always told me stories

As I sat there on your knee.

You always made me giggle

When I saw your smiling face.

You made my world such a special,

Happy, friendly place.
