A baby cradled in your arms…
Teaching me your gentle charms.
Growing up with you by my side…
Learning from you never to lie.
To understand and not judge too…
Love and kindness I also learned from you.
Through the years you watched me grow…
Teaching me everything I’d need to know.
Listening to every word I’ve said…
And every word I’ve wrote you’ve read.
You’ve been there for me to the end…
Until the day for you, God did send.
Now you watch me from up above…
Shining down on me your heavenly love.
I will miss you with all my heart…
Thank you for being there from the start.

Light After Dark

by Nurul Naiimah

As I sat by my window,
Looking out at the grey sky.
Tears rolled down my cheeks,
As its finally time to say goodbye.

Goodbye to a friend
Who was always there.
Goodbye to a family
Who always showed care.

Someone whom I turn to,
I don’t know how to move on.
Someone whom I relate to,
But now you’re gone.

But then a blue bird came,
And sat by my window.
The sun starts shining,
And evaporated all my sorrow.

Good memories came
To wash away the sadness.
Mended my heart
And filled it with gladness.

I wiped away my tears
And now that you’re gone.
I can’t give up now
I have to move on.

A Grandmother’s Love

by Brianna Golman

She was so nice and so sweet.
She had a big family and lots of friends
She was a grandmother that meant so much to me

But I never imagined the picture saying goodbye
Never thought the day would come
That I would see her one last time

She was always there when no one else was
She never left my side
That’s what a loving grandmother does

She was there with me through thick and thin
But who ever knew
Her time would end

I would give up even dollar, quarter, or dime
I’d give up my whole world
Just so I can see you one more time

Legacy of Love

by Unknown

A wife, a mother, a grandma too,
This is the legacy we have from you.
You taught us love and how to fight,
You gave us strength, you gave us might.
A stronger person would be hard to find,
And in your heart, you were always kind.
You fought for us all in one way or another,
Not just as a wife not just as a mother.
For all of us you gave your best,
Now the time has come for you to rest.
So go in peace, you’ve earned your sleep,
Your love in our hearts, we’ll eternally keep

When I Must Leave You

by Helen Steiner Rice

When I must leave you
For a little while
Please do not grieve
And shed wild tears
And hug your sorrow to you
Through the years,
But start out bravely
With a gallant smile;
And for my sake
And for my name
Live on and do
All things the same,
Feed not your lonliness
On empty days,
But fill each waking hour
In useful ways,
Reach out your hand
In comfort and in cheer
And I in turn will comfort you
And hold you near;
And never, never
Be afraid to die
For I am waiting for you in the sky!


We had a wonderful grandmother,
One who never really grew old;
Her smile was made of sunshine,
And her heart was solid gold;
Her eyes were as bright as shining stars,
And in her cheeks fair roses you see.
We had a wonderful grandmother,
And that’ s the way it will always be.
But take heed, because
She’s still keeping an eye on all of us,
So let’s make sure
She will like what she sees.
