They are the most wonderful people to make friends with. They are loving they are caring and they are unpretentious. They are there in times of sorrow and they are there in times of happiness. They are our grandparents. To honor them, Grandparents Day is celebrated in most countries across the world on the first Sunday after Labor Day in September. To convey our gratitude and love towards our grandparents, reciting short poems is the best method. Poems are very touching and convey so much in just a couple of words. In fact, short poems for grandparents can be as emotional and thoughtful as the lengthier ones. Apart from being short, these poems are very cute and sweet! You can memorize and recite these poems easily, as they don't have long and complicated phrases. We have provided a couple of short poems for grandparents in the lines below. Use them to make your grandparents feel special.
Short Poetry For Grandparents
Walk with Grandpa
I like to walk with Grandpa,
His steps are short like mine.
He doesn't say "Now hurry up!"
He always takes his time.
Most people have to hurry,
They do not stop and see,
I'm glad that God made Grandpa
"Unrushed" and young like me.
- Rodney O. Hurd
Grow old along with me!
The best is yet to be,
The last of life, for which the first was made:
Our times are in His hand
Who saith 'A whole I planned,
Youth shows but half; trust God: see all nor be afraid!'
- Robert Browning
As a white candle
In a holy place,
So is the beauty
Of an aged face.
- Joseph Campbell
Unknown Face In The Picture
You see it with your inner eye,
A picture in the mind,
You don't remember where it came from,
Where it went or at what time,
You see the smile, you see the face,
And know that times go on,
You feel your smile, you know your face.
And think of times long gone.
- Patricia Ayoola Ladipo
Nana's Little Angel
Nana you are special
Your love knows no bounds
A room takes special warmth whenever you're around
You think I'm cute and talented and maybe even wise
But I know that's why all grandparents see though loving eyes
Every day with you is precious
I'm so grateful for the time
Of all the grandparents in the world
I'm thankful that you're mine
- Lindsey M. Moulton
Grandma's Lil' Girl
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.
I thought of those Saturday mornings I watched them fix your hair,
I remember crossing the street and hearing GIRL YOU BETTER STOP RIGHT THERE!!!
I remember the goodness you instilled in me though sometimes it doesn't show,
You played a very special part in my life and I thought that you should know....
My childhood is filled with memories of you that you couldn't buy with all the gold in the world,
And even though I am all grown up, at heart I will always be GRANDMA'S LIL' GIRL!!!
