Bereavement Poem Request by Grandmother of Deceased Grandson

funeral poem for grandsonI received an email this week from Dana who asked me to write a poem for a grandmother whose grandson had been killed in a car accident. She wants to include a poem that would reflect the grandmother’s and grandson’s close relationship in a framed collage of pictures for the grandmother to keep.

My response was that I didn’t feel that I could write such a special grandmother poem because I didn’t know the grandmother or grandson personally. A poem such as that should be written by someone who knew them and observed their special grandmother – grandson relationship.

Find a Funeral Poem and Personalize It

I felt sad that I couldn’t fulfill her request so I searched for a grandmother poem that might come close and found the following poem. Words can be changed in any poem to create a more personalized poem for a loved one such as a grandmother, grandfather, or grandchild.

With a few changes, this poem could be turned around to be from a grandchild to a deceased grandmother.

To Grandmother from Her Angel Grandson

I really felt quite special
That God had chosen you…
To be a person in my life
Who knew me through and through.

The time that we spent talking
I always felt you heard…
You were so good at listening
To each and every word.

Even things I didn’t share
You somehow heard them, too…
It was a special gift of care
That God had given you.

So I just want to thank you
For being there for me…
Showing me love that was so true
By loving me totally.
