Grandparent Poems

Poems about Grandparents

A grandparents job is not easy. Grandchildren count on their grandparents to love them unconditionally to a degree that their parents may not be able to. Grandchildren expect their grandparents to listen, really listen, without judging right or wrong. It is often assumed that grandparents have no life of your own, and that they only exist to be called on when they are needed. This of course is not true. At the same time grandparents should not miss the opportunity that they have been given, a chance for a relationship with the next generation.

Poem Remembering Grandfather
  • By Sarah O.
  • Published: September 2014
A Man

There once was a man I loved
A man who cared
A man who shared
A man who knew life
A man who had a beautiful wife.

This man was a dad
This man was a grandfather
This man was my grandfather
This man is gone.

And I'll wait for so long
Until the day I'm with him
With him up there
Where the lights are dim
And where I can show him I've always cared.
