1. Grandad

My grandad bought a suit,shirt,
tie,socks and shoes
He didn’t know it at the time
that they would not be used.

He bought them for my wedding day
so he could look his best,
but the day I wed was the day
he died.
He just had to rest.

So I dedicate page to him
knowing he would approve.
But there will never be another
to walk in { MY GRANDADS SHOES}

2. Grandfather

I like to walk with Grandpa;
his steps are short like mine.
He doesn’t say, “Now hurry up,”
He always takes his time.

I like to walk with Grandpa;
his eyes see things mine do…
wee pebbles bright,
a funny cloud,
half-hidden drops of dew.

Most people have to hurry;
they do not stop and see.
I’m glad for Grandpa
unrushed and young like me.

Author: Rodney O. Hurd

3. The Serviceman

You were a 20 year Vet
And a true volunteer
But anyone who knew you knew
You family was your career

You were there day or night
To answer any call
You would do anything
To never let any of us fall

You watched over us
Through smiles and some tears
You led us through the peaks,
The valleys and fears

But now its your turn
To go, to get rest
We want you to know
We know you did your best

There is no more pain
No sickness no sorrow
You fought hard for over a year
And from you strength we shall borrow

You laid out the path
And shined a bright guiding light
You lived the most honorable way
And fought the good christian fight

We know its time for you to go
We’ll say goodbye with many tears
It will never get easier
No matter how many years

Youve finally won this race
Now its time for us to part
Youve made our lives much more special
From the beginning from the start

We couldn’t thank you enough
But you didnt mind
Like a real man, you didnt need it
Your love was unconditional, it was blind

Author: Frederick P. Woodfin Jr.

4. Dear Grandparent

We know you love us all through the year
but there are times when you aren’t here-
to see the things we do and say
to watch us in the games we play.

So we give you this, a picture book
for you to sit and take a look
to see our changes throughout the year
for they are many, so we hear.

One thing this book just could not do
is rightly show our love for you.
So know we’re truthful when we say
“We love you more and more each day!”

5. Grandfather

Since I was a little child,
In all that I’ve been through;
You’ve always been my hero,
No one stood as tall as you.

You were the one who took the time,
To teach what I needed to learn;
The lessons in life you shared with me,
You shared with love and concern.

I loved you as a little child,
And now that I am grown;
I share those lessons you taught me;
With children of my own.

Generation to generation,
I’ll pass on your legacy;
I’ll tell of my loving Grandfather,
And all that you mean to me.

6. Grandpa Doesn’t Care

Grandpa Doesn’t Care
My ice cream dripped on his good pants,
but grandpa doesn’t care.
his fishing tackle’s tangled up,
his rod is who knows where?
I lost his keys in the garage,
I’ve made a mess out there.
I’m always getting into things,
but grandpa doesn’t care.
I help him in the garden cause
we’re really quite a pair;
I pull the plants out with the weeds,
but grandpa doesn’t care.
When I am grown and on my own,
when visits become rare,
I won’t forget the love I’d get when
grandpa didn’t care.

Author: Denny

7. I Hope Grandpa Brought His Fishing Rod

I hope Grandpa brought his fishing rod,
His hat, some bait to lure a cod.
For Heaven without fishing
Would leave Grandpa wishing
That he’d been sent to somewhere else.

God, if you don’t mind
Sending him back would be just fine.
I promise this time
I’ll listen closely to his stories
Perhaps write down his memories.
I swear I’ll go fishing with him,
Because, with Grandpa, I’ve never been.

Grandpa, if you’d let me
I’d cry you an ocean, wait and see
And all my memories
Could be the fish.
So whenever you wish
Throw a line out to sea
And you’ll catch reminders of you and me.

Author: Juliana Judge

8. My Father

Every daughter likes to think
That her father is the best,
But there’s no doubt for me, Dad,
That you’re far above the rest.

When I was a little girl
You took time to play with me.

You’d wrestle, read, or color,
Though so tired you would be.

You knew that play was not enough
To make the greatest dad.
You also shared God’s love for me,
And for this I’m very glad.

Your godly life has made you
The best father there could be;
You’ve followed God’s example
Of what a father should be.

I love you, Father, on this day
As well as on the rest.
No dad on earth compares to you.
You simply are the best.

Author: Rachel Quillin

9. My Pop

I remember him just like I saw him yesterday,
Sitting on his bed with a rollie in his hand,
Looking out his window and watching the cars go by.
He was my favourite Pop of all, it was hard to say goodbye.
This man was taken away from me, my very own Pop had died.

He was a quiet timid man all of 71 years,
Who had been through war and heartbreak and then to slowly die.
He watched his son go through it too, it was very hard on his eyes.
I wish you were here with me now and your two great-gran kids too.
To have them sit on your knee and annoy you just like me.

I miss you very much Pop and your calm and gentle ways,
To kiss and hug you once again I know would be too much to say.
I hope you are very happy now sitting by your window high,
Looking down on all of us and not asking questions why.
I will remember you always until it’s my turn to fly.

10. Grandparents

Grandparents are special people with wisdom and pride.
They are always offering love and kindness and are always there to guide.
They often make you feel so confident and strong.
Their arms are always open, no matter what you did wrong.
They try to help out in every way that they can.
They love all their grandchildren the same whether you’re a child, woman, or man.
They are always there to listen and to lend a helping hand.
They show you respect and they try to understand.
They give their love, devotion, and so much more, that’s easy to see.
Grandparents, what perfect examples of the kind of person that we should be!

Author: Stacy Smith

11. Grandpa and Me

When Grandpa comes and reads to me
I feel the sun and smell the sea.
I hear of men who caught the whales,
And then some wild safari tales.

He reads how cowboys rode the trails
And men worked hard to build the rails
That carried trains out to the west
Then baseball stories I like best.

Grandpa can’t do skateboards, though.
He’s not good with Nintendo.
These things I overlook, you see,
‘Cause I love him, and he loves me.

Author: Bob Tucker

12. Grandpa Doesn’t Care

My ice cream dripped on his good pants,
but grandpa doesn’t care.
his fishing tackle’s tangled up,
his rod is who knows where?
I lost his keys in the garage,
I’ve made a mess out there.
I’m always getting into things,
but grandpa doesn’t care.
I help him in the garden cause
we’re really quite a pair;
I pull the plants out with the weeds,
but grandpa doesn’t care.
When I am grown and on my own,
when visits become rare,
I won’t forget the love I’d get when
grandpa didn’t care.

13. I Can Still Matter

As time passes on
I turn the next page
to discover a new me
while I continue to age.

I may no longer be
who I was long ago
but I still can matter –
that much I know.

With a new set of tools
I have gathered from time –
I keep looking forward
to more mountains to climb.

My best is not over
as the skeptics might say –
I just learn how to conquer
In a much wiser way.

So don’t sell me short –
I am not nearly done.
I CAN STILL MATTER –
I’ve only just begun.

14. If I could choose

If I could choose
from all the grandpas in the world,
there’s no doubt,
I would still choose you.

Your eyes that shine
with a touch of mischief,
your laugh that always
makes me smile…

your hands that are ready
to reach out to me,
your heart that’s always big enough
to welcome me…

the time you spend with me,
the stories you share with me…

If I could choose
from all the grandpas in the world,
there’s no doubt,
I would still choose you.

15. The Way We Will Remember You

The way we will remember you
Is walking across the beach with the sand beneath your toes
Striding into the freezing Cornish sea
Always equipped with your faithful wet suit and body board
Diving head first into the waves and swimming effortlessly in the clear blue water

The way we will remember you
Is holding our little hands tightly on brisk spring walks
Pushing us higher and higher on the swings
Running through the willow trees laughing and smiling
Playing pooh sticks on the bridge in the park while listening to the flowing water

The way we will remember you
Is creative and bursting with imagination
Perched at the bottom of our beds telling wild tales
Featuring naughty Elephants, angry crocodiles and bears covered in ice cream
Listening to your wonderful, kind voice painting pictures in our minds

The way we will remember you
Is full of life and spirit
Sparkling eyes and always smiling
Expertly dressed in your favourite navy jumper and bright corduroy jeans
Large tinted glasses, colourful knitted ties and an array of hats fit for a king

The way we will remember you
Is wearing a wig and dress
Acting as the dame in the pantomime
Singing and cheering with bright red cheeks
Taking a break from acting to take us to the theatre, to see Cats and the phantom of the opera

The way we will remember you
Is at Christmas time, arriving with pillow cases full of presents
Playing with us for hours and helping us set up our new toys
Watching our plays and performances – never laughing
Building snow men and throwing snow balls in the crisp white snow

The way we will always remember you
Is kind, caring and thoughtful
We go forward only with happy and wonderful memories
Thank you Pupa you filled our lives with laughter, imagination and love.
We will miss you always.

16. Generations of Love

It is reflected in a Grandfather’s eyes.
It echoes in a Grandfather’s touch.
In every smile and whisper shared,
Tween a Grandfather and Grandson.
It shines for all to see.
Generations of Love.

Author: Teri Woolley

17. The Old Home Place

I can see the crooked boards
That line the outer walls.
I can smell the age-old scent
I hear the rooster call.

I like the lingering aroma
Of Grandma’s old cook stove,
As she prepares to bake her pies
Using apples from the grove.

I see her wipe her wrinkled hands
Upon the apron which she wore.
Then she stokes the dying coals,
To start the fire once more.

Grandpa, in his chair he sits,
As he whittles on some wood.
He loves to do creative things.
It makes him feel real good.

I hear the clanging of a bell;
Oh, the cows are coming up.
Grandpa folds his pocketknife
And empties his coffee cup.

He gives his tired, old body
A good, long, needed stretch.
To the pasture he slowly walks.
I know the cows he’ll fetch.

The old home-place still looks good.
It gives my heart a lift.
To see and smell the age-old rooms,
Is such a precious gift.

I even feel the spirits
Of the two dear, precious souls,
That together cared for home & hearth
And reached their well-planned goals.

Author: Mary Walker-Butler

18. So Many Years Gone By

There is a man
How he sits in his chair
Thinking of years gone by
Quickly he smiles, slowly he frowns
At his thoughts
Of good times and bad
He takes his photo album
of so many years gone by
So many smiling faces
All looking at him
All of his children
Oh how they have grown
From babies to parents
With babies of their own
Staring up at his face
As he flips through open pages
of his life
So many memories
Of so many years gone by.

Author: Yvonne Michelle McCauley

So I dedicate page to him

But there will never be another

22. Losing my grandpa

Losing my grandpa was not easy
It took a tool on me and my family
He was there for everything
Until he was told that the cancer was back
He needed surgery after sugary
but that day when I walked through that door
That phone had rang
I did not know what it could bring
good or bad news
But it was bad
I was took that my grandpa did not wake up
And that he was gone
That second
I thought of all the fun time we had
All the memories we shared
As those tears ran down my race
It was to hard to bare
But now my grand pa will always have that place in my heart
forever.
Love you grandpa
R.I.P Grandpa
