Grandchild Poems:


You are the child of my child, and your life is a joy to me.

I am grateful to have you in my life.

As I watch through the generations, I am reminded that the bonds we form are as everlasting as the spirit.


Grandchildren are a blessing, a gift from heaven above,  

precious little angels, to cherish and love.

A wee bit of heaven, drifted down from above,

a handful of happiness, a heartful of love.


Grandchildren give you gifts everyday:

They give you a smile for your face,

a warm feeling for your heart

and joy for your soul.

Grandma Poems:

that's one happy grandma - and one happy grandkid!


Grandma, hold me a little longer, rock me a little more.

Tell me another story  (you've only told me four!).

Let me sleep on your shoulder, I love your happy smile.

I'll always love you, Grandma, so stay with me a while.

Only A Grandma

...can be filled with such kindness

... can love with such a big heart

... can be such a blessed soul


... can give such great wisdom

that will last a whole lifetime.


Gives the best hugs

Takes us on adventures

Makes each day full of sunshine

Always makes us feel special

Reads us stories

Tells us stories about her childhood

Has a beautiful heart

Sings silly songs

Sends us fan mail

Is one in a million to us!

Grandpa Poems:


I like to walk with grandpa, he takes his time to see.

His steps are little just like mine, he stops and waits for me.

He lets me ask him questions, he lets me hold his hands.

He makes me feel 10 feet tall and I think that he is Grand.

He says there is no one like me and Gold is what I'm worth.

When I get to walk with grandpa, I'm the luckiest kid in the world.

arms that always hold,

love that's never ending

and a heart of gold.
