Grandma Poems

Some of my best memories were spent with my grandmother. She was truly one of the most loving people I know, and I am so lucky to be related to her. Okay, before I get to sappy…I will let you start to read these amazing grandma poems! There are plenty of different styles to go through, from single line poems to long ones!

1. Grandmother

She’s the one you see, at all my birthday parties, and school plays,
It’s oh so reassuring to know, her smiles are just for me,
The darkest night brightens, the moment I hear her voice,
And rainy days become adventures when she joins in the play,
My grandmother is so special,
No one can ever take her place,
My heart is filled with love each time I see her face.

2. She Knows

My grandmother knows everything about me sometimes before they happen,
She has a sixth sense about most things in life,
She knows how to kiss my cheek, or dry my tears, whenever I am hurt or afraid,
She bakes all kinds of yummy food and can even make a snowman, too,
In summertime, she teaches me to swim and how to catch a fish,
But best of all, she knows how to be the best grandmother in the world to me.

3. For Grandma

i heard your voice this morning
speaking from the foot of the bed
your quilt crawled to the
as i lay down in the
first whisper of dawn.
i heard your voice this morning
the sound of cloth
a casual sound
a sunday morning
preparing to visit your lord
half your life
half my life
half my daughter’s life
we all dream of landscapes
romantic deserts
white sands
connecting us together
a half dozen roses
i play out my life
listening every morning
for your voice
at the foot of the bed.

Thanks, grandma, I love you a lot,
You are always in my thoughts!

6. A Grandma’s Heart

A grandma’s heart is filled with love,
And gratitude to God above.
She thanks the Lord for her family tree,
And all the blessings she can see.

7. I Love You, Grandma

Who has the tenderness of a mother?
Who has the wisdom of a school teacher?
Who has the tricks of a magician?
Who has the ability to see the world through a child’s eye?
Who has the stories about Mum and Dad?
Who has always loved no matter what I do?
Who has the songs to sing me when I am blue?
Of course, it’s my Grandma,
And I love you, and you bless my life!

Sometimes, when I get tired

I think about my grandma

My Grandma, who always puts everyone first

with a smile on her face

and I continue on for her.

To have a lovely grandma like you,

In my life, you have an important role to play,
Thanks, grandma, I love you a lot,
You are always in my thoughts!

28. To A Grandmother

At six o’clock in the evening,
The time for lullabies,
My son lay on my mother’s lap
With sleepy, sleepy eyes!
(O drowsy little manny boy,
With sleepy, sleepy eyes!)

I heard her sing, and rock him,
And the creak of the swaying chair,
And the old dear cadence of the words
Came softly down the stair.

And all the years had vanished,
All folly, greed, and stain–
The old, old song, the creaking chair,
The dearest arms again!
(O lucky little manny boy,
To feel those arms again!)

Christopher Morley

29. To The Grandmothers

Chornobyl, thirty years later

Old women with side gardens and jars
of moonshine alone in empty villages,

tell me, solitary lynx, multitudinous wolf
pack, how do you do it – all my life I’ve lived

in cities, bought food from grocery stores –
what’s it like to return to the abandoned zone

on foot, reclaim your cottage beside the dank
canal, to howl, to hunt in packs, to foal calves,

fell trees, light down in the bodies of swans
and swim in cooling ponds, why would you

fly three thousand miles to build a nest
inside the cracked concrete sarcophagus

over the remains of reactor four? She grins,
hands over a jelly jar of vodka, the good stuff,

-Marsha De La O

Grandma Poems She Deserves to Hear

I don’t think we tell the people we love how we feel often enough. Life is too short to not express how we feel! Though it may feel silly, I urge you to read one of these grandma poems out loud to your Grandma next time you see her.

30. My Grandmas Song

When I was small,

and my grandma was tall

she would sing me a song

I’ve never forgotten,

I know where she got it,

The words I know all.

I hear them now, and I think of you

what a gift, when a song

is given to you.

31. My Grandmother’s Heart

Soft like cotton candy,
Caring like mother earth,
Beautiful like a piece of art,
Sweet like honey,
Deep like faith,
That was my grandmother’s heart.

-Lucio Munoz

32. Toot Toot

My grandmother makes the best PB &Js

The best cookies

The best soup.

The best everything.

That’s my horn I get to toot.

33. Starry Night

There is always a moment,

when I look up at the sky at night

and feel you looking back at me.

I miss you Grandma.

34. Time Changes You

I remember when I was young,

I used to be so shocked by how much my mom looked like my grandma

as if it were just a copy-paste.

I don’t see it as clearly now, as I did then

But I know they are one.

35. My Grandma

You are the basis of my favorite memories

You are who I think of when I am looking for comfort

I am so grateful that you are mine.

36. Great Grandma

There is no way that I am going to miss the look on Grandma’s face

When I tell her that I named our daughter after her.

After all, she will be strong. Kind. Funny.

I want her to be great like her Great Grandma.

Baker of cookies,

Lover of children

I love you so.

She was soft

she was strong.

She never let anyone

Tell her what she was doing

with arms wide open.

I have grandma fever,

I cannot wait

for my little to have a little

so for goodness sake…

make me a Grandma.

There is proof that you have spent your life smiling.

42. Amir

There are a few things in this world

That I hold dear.

My childhood blanket,

My Cat,

And my Grandma, Amir

I never thought that you would be mine

here while everything is suspended in time

I made your mom, and she made you

I am your Gramma Sue.

44. I Love You

There is no greater feeling than a Grandma’s love

45. My Future Self

I want to be a grandma one day

There is something so comforting about it

It’s like, once you reach that age

all fear and hate leave your heart

and you are left a beacon of happiness

46. Is It True

Is it true that one day you won’t be here?

I don’t want to believe it could be.

What kind of world would I be living in,

with you not right next to me?

47. I am Grateful

I am grateful that I got your wise years,

that I know this version of you.

You have learned many things,

felt many stings,

and they made you into

the person I know, love and cherish.

I love you, Grandma; please don’t perish.
