Grandmothers are special people;
They're one of life's warmest joys,
Because their giving extends beyond
Cookies and childhood toys.
They're teachers,guides,and role-models
For what we aspire to do;
They're friends who cross the gap of years ,
They're second mothers,too.
Because they've lived so fully,
They have so much to share-
Stories,dreams,and memories,
The patience to listen and care,
A hug for all the good things we do,
A handkerchief for the tears,
Laughter and smiles for silly things,
Prayers and advice for our fears.
grandmothers are special people;
They have this wonderful way
Of letting us know we're special,too,
And loved each and every day
