Grandfathers Need Not Fathers Be

Grandfathers need not fathers be.
All one needs to do is choose
to love for life, and that embrace,
held long and hard, bestows the grace
each craves. For all, in time must lose,
restored alone by memory.
So how it is with you and me.

My Grandad

When I was just a tiny kid,
Do you remember when,
The time you kissed my bruises,
Or cleaned by soiled chin?

You scrambled for the balls I hit,
(Short-winded more than not,)
Yet, every time we’d play a game,
You praised the “outs” I caught.

It seems like only yesterday,
You wiped away my tears,
And late at night I called your name,
To chase away my fears.

Though time has changed your handsome grip,
Your hair is snowy white,
Your gait’s a little slower now,
Thick glasses help your sight.

Oh, do I thirst for years gone by,
To be that growing lad,
Re-living all of the memories,
Of loving times with my grandad.

A Grandfather Means….

A Grandfather means so many things…
An understanding heart,
A source of strength and support
Right from the very start.
A constant readiness to help
in a kind and thoughtful way.
With encouragement and forgiveness
No matter what comes your way.
A special generosity and always affection, too
A Grandfather means so many things
When he’s a man like you…

Grandfather, You are Special To Me

Grandfather, you are someone who is very special to me.
All my life, I’ve been able to count on you to listen,
to understand, and support me through everything.
So even though I might not tell you as often as I should,
don’t ever think for a moment that I don’t appreciate you…
because, as far as I’m concerned,
you’re the best Grandfather there is.
I love you!

A Little Girls Needs a Grandad

A little girl needs a grandad
For many, many things:
Like holding her high off the ground
Where the sunlight sings!
Like being the deep music
That tells her all is right
When she awakens frantic with
The terrors of the night.
Like being the great mountain
That rises in her heart
And shows her how she might get home
When all else falls apart.
Like giving her the love
That is her sea and air,
So diving deep or soaring high
She’ll always find him there.
