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 About The Death Of A Grandmother
  • By Glycerinne Tennan

I loved your bright blue eyes,
Now I cannot see them.

I loved your beautiful voice,
Now it's cracked and hoarse.

I loved the warmth you radiated,
Now I feel your warmth drain away.

I loved the energetic spirit.
Now, still, you lay

I loved your sincere smile,
Now it is a feeble attempt to say, "I'm fine."

I loved how you said you'd be there forever,
Now I hate these cold machines.

You were the sun in my gloom,
The permanent darkness has taken over now.
You left us all, with help from them,
The spider-like ghosts
That float away in white coats,
Ashamed of their work,
Yet proud that the deed is done.

Sobbing and broken, we stand and watch.
As they switch off the machines,
As they remove the dripping needles,
As they check the heart they know has stopped,
As they tell us all
You're gone forever.
