Even today, with all of the independent, cool, techno savy, cell phone texting, SUV driving, hard-working Grandmothers…somethings never change, thank goodness.
We grandmothers are still rocking our grandchildren to sleep, or sitting with them on our lap while we read them a story… It’s those special one-on-one rocking moments that seem to stay with us, that bring grandmothers and grandchildren closer together.
Grandmother’s Rocking Chair
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 awhile.

Thank you, Deanna! Do you have a favorite poem you share with your grandchildren?
I am enjoying reading your poems. I have 4 Grandchildren and always wanting to send poems to them.
Oh Nana, why do you have to go home?
Your poem says it all.
