Thinking about my grandma,
and how we had such fun,
She sat telling me stories,
and played with me in the sun,

She always kept a box of toys,
so I had plenty things to do.
I made horses out of pipe cleaners,
and egg carton bats too.

She wasn't too old to play hide and seek,
or go on a merry go round.
She would smile and sing,
and I never saw her frown.

Her hair was all silver,
tied up in a bun,
Although she had many grandchilden,
I felt I was the only one.

She would take me on long walks,
with her soft hand in mine.
Always with a smile for me,
brighter than the sunshine.

She was the most perfect cook,
that I ever did see,
Making rolls and muffins,
and sun brewed ice tea.

But now her and my grandfather,
are with the good Lord above.
Adding to heavens joy,
and giving it more love.

Its been many years,
I'm all grown up, of course.
But I still think of them and sometimes,
I make a small pipe cleaner horse.

There was never a woman or a grandmother greater than this woman...She was kind and sweet always had time for her family and friends...She always had a game to play or a song to sing...She had 13 grandchildren and many more step-grandchildren...I can't even tell you how many great-grandchildren...but each and everyone thought he or she was the only one...How great is that?...I miss her so much every day...My life hasn't been the same without her in it...I miss not being able to share with her my life now that I'm a mother...She is greatly missed by her proginy...Thank you CUZ for this beautiful and sweet tribute to an ANGEL

You speak the truth of our grandmother. And I am blessed to have a deeper understanding and appreciation of this poem. We will love her always.

Reminds me of my grandmother. What wonderful memories you have and how sweetly you keep them. Bravo.
