Grandmother Poem

Grandma's Lil' Girl

Taking the time to thank the ones in our life who made a difference

Grandma's Lil' Girl

© Donna C. Elkins

Grandma, I was thinking of you today and a smile tickled my face.
Remembering all the things you taught me, like always to say grace.
I remember sitting in your lap while you read the Bible out loud,
To hear me sing a gospel song made you so proud.
I thought of those Saturday mornings I watched them fix your hair,
I remember crossing the street and hearing GIRL YOU BETTER STOP RIGHT THERE!!!
I remember the goodness you instilled in me though' sometimes it doesn't show,
You played a very special part in my life and I thought that you should know....
My childhood is filled with memories of you that you couldn't buy with all the gold in the world,
And even though' I am all grown up, at heart I will always be GRANDMA'S LIL' GIRL!!!

  • My grandmother passed away today at 6 p.m. I had not seen her for 14 years due to circumstances beyond my control. But even now, this poem describes the relationship she and I had. Thank you.

  • ........just like my Grandma. She was my world and I was hers, even after her passing 20 years ago, I still feel her special love in my heart. Being a blessed Grandma of seven wonderful Grandchildren, I do have to ask myself Grandma always knew what to do. Grandma did without a lot in her lifetime, but she gave everything that she had to me. Her spirit lives in me and I am proud to say that I love and cherish my Grandma to this day and always. Her life was believing in the Lord and sticking to the basics. Grandma you were an angel on earth and I know you have long earned your wings in heaven, you are my inspiration and I will always love you

  • Mammaw was sweet pretty and I will always admire how a strong fighter she was I will miss her and think all my life. And when I die I will be proud to see her. And I bet she will be watching over her family members all the time. When she goes to heaven she will be so happy to see her beloved husband Pappaw and I really really really loved her really really much and that's all I got to say.

  • I just saw this and it made me cry but four other poems did too. My Nana just passed away the 14th of December and I truly miss her I really wish I could have told her how much she meant to me before she left to God, even thought she wasn't really there the doctors in the ICU were amazing to her. I know that I am not the only person that misses her but this poem is amazing and it remind me of some of the things me and my Nana did together

  • Some of my best memories as a kid is with my Grandma, she was a very unique person. I loved her dearly. I hope my Granddaughter will say the same about me one day. All future grandchildren. If so I hit the jackpot. M.E.

  • My grandma died 5 years ago because of brain cancer. She was a very important part of my life. Now she is not with me but her memories always bring a smile on face. She was very important for me and she will always remain important for me.
