Grandma's Wings

Grandma I wonder
where you keep your wings.

Are they hung in your closet
with the rest of your things?

Do you put them away
and just use them at night

or give them to Rosie
to polish up bright.

I know you have wings,
for this must be true,

'cause God always gives
them to Angels just like you.

This poem touched me down deep. I loved my granny so much she meant the word to me she was always there for me even in my darkest hours of life if it wasn't for her my sister and I would have never even known what it was like to be shown love and human affection. Before she passed I was taking care of her a lot so we spent a lot of time together I used to lay in bed with her at night and we would hold hands and she would say to me . Girl you know you are earning a lot of points in heaven . And sometimes during the day just out of no where she would just look at me and say. Girl you earning them angel wings gosh I miss her so much.

I love this poem so much, a tear dropped off my eyes, but it's sad I can't share it with my granny because she passed away 2 years ago. I miss you so much on till we meet to part no more.

Hi my granny was 99 years old and she was suffering really bad with Alzheimer's. She was an amazing granny that deserved a heart of gold. She died on the 22nd of December this year. It was Sunday night when she passed away I will always be thinking of you granny. You meant the world to me. Suzannexx

Awwww. I LOVE LOVE LOVE this poem. It's so sweet.
It makes me want to appreciate my own grandmother much more. She's the only other person (other than my mom) who has always been there for me and my brothers. Every single day my grandma would be there when we got home from school. She did a lot of work around the house even when my BEGGED her to stop. I don't think there'll ever be a person like her. I'll try to cherish every single moment I have with her.

My grandma took me and my other 4 siblings in and she adopted me and my little brother. She's nice. My mom and dad got into a lot of trouble so she took us in. People say if it weren't for her we would of been adopted immediately because I was 4 and my brother was 3 months old.

My grandmother has always had a special place deep inside of me,
she's been understanding of my needs - I have autism - she has loved and cared for me when everyone thought I was strange and didn't want to know me. She loved me always...if I could give her one thing in the whole wide world it would be angels wings...but she doesn't need another set because she already has some :)
I think your grandma will love this it is very sweet you are a good writer too x

About to turn 75 this month I have been noticing that recently my grandson has somewhat pulled away from me emotionally--and in an effort to understand his hesitancy around me I asked him: "can we meet for our usual baseball game later today?" His response was--"you're a good hitter, and you pitch pretty well too, but Grandma, you just can't run!"

I'm a granddaughter who's grandmother is raising my brother and I and without her I wouldn't be half the young woman I am now at the age of 15.

Well, I'm an grandmother so I think some of these poems are really touching. I really think they're pretty good for people to make on the other hand for example they have sad and touching ones funny, cool, plain. They have lots of interesting poems so they are really doing a good job at doing their poem writing and also some poems are good for children to do. So, there's a lot of good poems out there, so have a blessed day!!!!

My beloved maternal grandmother just passed away at the age of 86. She was my last living grandparent. She was always so kind and so gracious. Each one of us grandchildren always felt like we were the favorite, even though she and Grandpa made all of us feel that way and we were all loved equally. Whenever Grandma did something nice for me, I would tell her, "Grandma, you've earned your wings." She would smile when I'd say that. I miss her terribly. I can relate to this poem so much--wouldn't be surprised if Grandma had a pair of wings in her closet too! Grandmothers make the world go 'round and no one can convince me otherwise!

I love my grandma to the deepest part of my heart she means so much to me it feels like I could say those same words and mean it cause only special grandmas get wings


I'm a grandma who just started blogging, and I thought many people would be touched by this sweet poem for Poetry Month! I think it would thrill me if my little grandchildren ever said anything like this to me! Thank you!

This story touched me because my grandmother stood up and took me in, I do not consider her my grandmother but I do consider her my mother. She loves me unconditionally, still after 38 years. I am so blessed to have her there for me.

I believe in angels. My biological parents could not take care of me and did not want me, so my dad's mom adopted me. I am adopted by my grandparent's, though I consider them my parents because they raised me since I was a year and half old. My grandmother is an angel to me. I like your poem very much. Keep writing,
