Grandmother Poems

Poems for Grandmothers

A grandmother's job never ends. Many grandmothers in our society step in to raise children when their mother is unavailable. Even in the best of situations, having a grandmother to help with child raising and to provide a softer touch is often a welcome intrusion. The other side of the issue is that grandmothers have to realize when it is time to step back and keep their mouths shut. If there is a healthy father and mother, they are the ones with the final say in how to raise their children.

    Memories Of Grandma

    Grandma, I was thinking of you today and a smile tickled my face.

    To hear me sing a gospel song made you so proud.
