Family Poem about Love

The memories of childhood are never forgotten and are often in the forefront of our minds.

A Grandparent's Love

© Tina Williams
It seems like only yesterday
Our lives were just beginning.
Your love for us never failed,
Our hearts continually mending.

It is strange to watch the time fly
Before our very eyes,
Which reminds me of the blessing,
That we have you in our lives.

To have yet to feel the touch
That's as gentle as your hand
The closeness of our family
One could never understand.

As each of our lives
Continue to change,
Reflections of your love
In each of us remains.

You have pointed out the path
And led us along the way;
The wisdom you have planted,
We each still hold today.

You sheltered us through childhood
And saw us through today,
Taught us of the Lord above,
About faith, and how to pray.

One day we'll all be in heaven
Dancing on the throne,
Praising God for giving us
A family like we've never known.

No matter where our lives may go,
We will trust the Lord above
And through it all always thank him for our grandparents love.
