Grandparent's Day Poems

Poems for Grandparent's Day

Many people may not know that this day exists. Some may choose to ignore it. They may think, "must we have a day for every person in the universe, when does all this day naming end?" Sadly, those people probably did not have an opportunity to develop a relationship with their grandparents. They don't understand the gifts that a grandparents can give. Grandparents can provide a sense of continuity and roots to their grandchildren. They can provide a sense that life matters, and the ability to see life within a larger context of time. Happy Grandparents Day!

    Memories Of Grandma

    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.
