She is one of our sweetest companions. She will forget all your mistakes and remember all your accomplishments. Her sweet and kind words and her warm embrace, or even a loving glance can soothe an upset child. As mothers in our society have little time to devote for the upbringing of their kids, grandmas willingly step in to care for their grandchildren. Sometimes, her genuine affection can even surpass maternal care. She plays an instrumental role in the transfer of traditional and cultural values to the next generation. Many communities look up to elderly grandmothers as they possess valuable knowledge and have the capacity to advise and supervise the younger generation. Having seen the world and lived her life, she knows the knack of comforting her family before comforting herself. However, with our busy lifestyles, sometimes we forget to tell how much we love her. There are different ways to show love to your granny. One way is by sending special poems that highlight your feelings for her. It is sure to tug at your grandma's heartstrings as she reads those lines.
Grandmother you are like a patchwork quilt
So cozy and warm.
Just the smell of coffee
Reminds me of your wisdom and charm.
I know I can always come to you
When lost or alone.
For you always comfort me
And make me feel at home.
You are the silver lining of a cloudy day.
And I know whom can trust
when clouds blow my way.
Grandmother, your hugs and kisses
Will be stored in my heart each day.
I just want to let you know
You mean the world to me
Only a heart as dear as yours
Would give so unselfishly
The many things you've done
All the times you were there
Help me know deep down inside
How much you really care
Even though I might not say
I appreciate all you do
Richly blessed is how I feel
Having a grandmother just like you
Grandmas give you lot of chocs
And let you stay up late,
Then they give you lots of pop
And sweeties by the crate.
They tell you brilliant stories of when
Mum & Dad were small
You then find out the real truth,
They weren't so good at all
They're Father Christmas all year round
They never ever bug you.
With massive hearts and open arms
Just waiting there to hug you
Back where my memory begins
I have always seen my grandma a friend
When I was small and couldn't talk
She would hold me as I tried to walk
If I fell I didn't cry
Cause grandma held me and called me sweetie pie.
She told me I could be what I wanted to be
And she would always be there for me
We went fishing and drove around
We had fun with her, I was never down
Now I am older she is still there
When I am with her I know she cares
She still takes me places and tells me things
To her I recite poetry to me she sings
I love her so much she loves me too
I told her I am here for you, she me too
We always talk everyday
I live for those moments in a way
I am thankful I have her here
She is my grandma best-friend I hold dear.
To her I give my hats off too
Because she loves me the way she does
I know God couldn't be everywhere, I tell her its true..
That is why He gave me you.
I love you Nanny/Grandma such a lot
You mean the world to me
You're patient, kind and full of fun
And thoughtful as can be
You help me out and give advice
You're there when times are bad
You buy me treats and things I need
And hug me when I'm sad.
But best of all, we're special pals
And as today's for you
It seems the perfect time to say
'You're Wonderful'...it's true!
